Mary is looking after a young child whose parents have little time for her. So, when Mary travels home to meet her childhood sweetheart, she takes the child with her. Meanwhile, her boyfriend has a mishap on the road, and is tricked out of his money by a tramp. When the tramp then hitches a ride on a train, the boyfriend does so as well. At the station, he meets Mary and the child, and they plan to re-board the train together. But difficulties arise when Mary sees her boss boarding the same train - and there is also the problem that her boyfriend doesn't have a ticket. Written by
Mary is a babysitter to poor lonesome Dolly.The little girl begs to go with Mary on a trip, as she is supposed to see her boyfriend who has promised to get her as she turns 18.A bum tricks Harold out of his money and he tries to get it back- by all means necessary.He gets underneath the train where the bum is with his money.He gets the money only to lose it again.Mary sees her employer getting on the very same train, so she gets in to explain the child's presence.Now Harold has to babysit Dolly.Not the easiest task in the world.Now or Never is a Harold Lloyd three-reeler from 1921.It's directors are Fred C. Newmeyer and Hal Roach.Loyd and his future wife Mildred Davis have the chemistry thing going on.Anna Mae Bilson (b.1915) is just adorable as The Lonesome Little Child.After this she appeared only in one movie, Our Gang the following year.This is a rather sweet Harold Lloyd comedy.Kind of like Charles Chaplin's The Kid (1921).Lloyd and the little girl work great together.The movie has some many enjoyable moments.We see Harold driving his car and causing damage in the farm.He pays for the damage- to a bum.It's hilarious to see him clinging underneath the train with the bum.It's funny when he gets some shaving cream inside his mouth instead of toothpaste.And how he stops the train to get some milk for the girl- he goes milking a cow.Or when Harold has problems with dressing the little girl.He asks that man to help him, who holds the dress and Harold makes the girl dive into it.There still remains piece of clothing.And in the end Harold is on top of the train.This is the most enjoyable ride with Harold Lloyd.
