Dr. Jack (1922)

**** (out of 4)

Dr. Jack (Harold Lloyd) is the nicest doctor in town who gets a kick out of helping people in his own strange ways. His latest client is a woman who seems to be healthy but a mean German doctor is making her appeal ill so he can keep collecting from her rich father. This is certainly the best film I've seen from Lloyd. I wouldn't say any of the jokes are hysterical but all of them are very fast paced and come non-stop. The highlight includes one scene where a girl calls Lloyd because "Mary" is dying but when he shows up "Mary" turns out to be her baby doll. Another highlight is the ending, which is a madcap of fast jokes as Lloyd dresses up as a vampire to show the girl isn't sick.
