Storyline

Always the mama's boy, or in this case a grandma's boy, Sonny joins a posse after a tramp accused of robbery and murder. He is unable to conquer his cowardice until Grandma tells him of his grandfather, also a coward, who overcame his fears with the help of a magic amulet. With new courage (and the charm), Sonny captures the fugitive and becomes the hero of the day. Written by Herman Seifer <alagain@aol.com>

Trivia

Originally intended as a serious movie, this film was altered by Harold Lloyd into a comedy by adding the gag scenes later on. See more »

Goofs

Right after Harold has been deputized, he enters the barn and lets off a shotgun blast which stirs up a flock of chickens. In the long shot, the chickens are flying around Harold and he still holds the rifle; in the next shot, a medium shot, his hands are empty; in the following shot, which is another long shot, he's once again holding the rifle.

A Very Nice Film
19 October 2000 | by (Milan, Italy) – See all my reviews

GRANDMA'S BOY is among the first silent comedies that focus on characterization. It is also Lloyd's breakthrough picture which set him on the rank of Chaplin and Keaton and we can easily see why. It's full of tightly linked, ingenious gags( even where he put his hat would serve as a link to later action ). It also keeps some acrobatic movements that reminds us of Lloyd's 2 reeler days. It has a strong story line, and consistent plot development and delicate performance from Lloyd as well. The Grandpa's Civil war episode is truly funny.
