Funny Frantic Finale...
17 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

but that's about it. Mostly blah comedy from Harold Lloyd, but it has its moments. A big hit in 1922 when Lloyd was a major box office star, this comedy about a kindly doctor helping the sick little well girl (Mildred Davis) lumbers along with a few good bits until the frantic ending when a lunatic escapes from an asylum, throwing the house into an uproar. Certainly not among the great Lloyd's best--Safety Last, The Kid Brother, Girl Shy--but still worth the 60 minutes. Anna Townsend (the star of Grandma'a Boy with Lloyd) is the old lady, C. Norman Hammond is the lawyer, Florence Mayon is the hotel girl, Mickey Daniels is the homely boy, and Eric Mayne is the fake doctor. Funny ending, but it comes after too much so-so material. Lloyd is always sweet and gracious, Davis is better than in her other Lloyd films (yes they were married in 1923), and the monkey and dog are quite funny. After his string of early 20s box office hits, Harold Lloyd would make his masterpiece, Safety Last, in 1923, right after finishing Dr. Jack.
