Trivia

The final climax of the picture on board of the ship between Harold and Vance was basically reworked from Harold Lloyd's The Kid Brother (1927). The film was also shot with a silent film camera to re-create the Lloyd silent technique and the sound effects and dialogue were recorded in post-production. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning of the shipboard fight scene, the mounted life preserver is seen to accidentally fall. Near the end of the fight, it is back on its mount. See more »

One of the best Lloyd's Talkies
19 October 2000 | by (Milan, Italy) – See all my reviews

MOVIE CRAZY certainly is one of the best Lloyd's Talkies. From the opening gag on there are so many enjoyable moments only Lloyd knows how to provide. The screen test scenes are among the highlights. As always gags are very tightly built. Lloyd also handles the dialogue and timing pretty well; but Constance Cummings portrays a dominating, intelligent female lead that is rare in Lloyd's movies. Only complaint: if the high rise sequence in Feet First is recycled from Safety Last, the fighting-in-the-water scene here certainly looks familiar as well-from The Kid Brother. It's also a bit long and excessive.
