Fred C. Newmeyer,
While at an amusement park, two men try to win the heart of a young lady. They compete with each other while attempting to find her runaway dog, and they race to ask her mother's permission to take her up in a hot air balloon.
Our hero (Lloyd) is infatuated with a girl in the next office. In order to drum up business for her boss, an osteopath, he gets an actor friend to pretend injuries that the doctor "cures", thereby building a reputation. When he hears that his girl is marrying another, he decides to commit suicide and spends the bulk of the film in thrilling, failed attempts.Written by

Pioneering stuntman Harvey Parry doubled for Harold Lloyd in several of the most dangerous shots in this and other Lloyd films; only after the death of Lloyd (who was always said to do his own stunts) did Parry "go public" about his involvement. See more »
He can do anything he tries. Why, he even learned the names of all the vice presidents.

A lovesick young man must NEVER WEAKEN when he unexpectedly finds himself in a most precarious & dangerous situation.
Here is one of Harold Lloyd's thrill pictures, which offers quick-moving comedy and genuine suspense. The first half of the film has Harold trying to roundup patients for his girlfriend's boss. The second half puts Harold up on the framework of a building under construction - clutching, crawling & careening out over empty space. His obvious athletic ability is made even more remarkable by the fact that he was using only half of his right hand, his disfigurement, caused by a studio accident, hidden by a glove.
Pretty Mildred Davis, who would soon become Mrs. Harold Lloyd, plays the object of his affections.
