Fool's Luck (1926)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

A spoiled man (Lupino Lane) gets kicked out of his fancy apartment after his uncle stops sending him money. This comes at a bad time because the girl of his dreams and her father are on their way there to have dinner. There are a few nice laughs and some great stunts here including one scene where they try to lower a piano out a ten-story window, which is clearly influenced by Harold Lloyd. There's also another very nice sequence where Lane is riding on top of a moving truck when the driver falls out.
