Storyline

Harold is starving since he has no money to buy food. He may even fight a young starving girl and her starving dog for a morsel. Their unwitting attempts at getting money for food may get them into trouble. But they are helped by a young woman, Mildred. Harold doesn't want to disappoint her, which may be the case when they meet again. But in making things right with her, she may get into a bit a scrap herself with some criminal elements. She is coming into some money fro an inheritance, but she is unaware that the lawyer handling the matter is trying to bilk her out of the money. Harold may yet again unwittingly help her in thwarting the actions of the lawyer while he tries to evade the law himself. Written by Huggo

Lesser Lloyd

From Hand to Mouth (1920)

** (out of 4)

A tramp (Harold Lloyd) meets a young homeless girl and her dog and the three try to get some food. I'm sure this was meant to be a sweet little film but it doesn't come off that way and the lack of laughs make it rather uninteresting.

Eastern Westerner, An (1920)

** (out of 4)

A party boy (Harold Lloyd) is sent out west by his parents but once there he encounters a group of masked bandits. I really didn't find this short very entertaining. Not many laughs to be found here.
