Storyline

As Harry has "cleaned up" on the football field and won the big game, Natalie's dad figured that he should do the same in the world of work before marrying his daughter. Harry's chance to prove himself comes with an "engineering" job with the city. But it's sanitary engineering, and while our street sweeping hero tries his best, he just can't avoid making enemies. When he stumbles into the midst of a lively Chinatown tong war, it's Harry's bravery that saves Natalie and wins the day. Written by Anonymous

Watch out for the tube train sequence!
26 October 2004 | by didi-5See all my reviews

The boy, a rubbish football player, weedy and nerdy (the wonderful Harry Langdon, new to me), loves the girl (Natalie Kingston, underused). So he tries to do anything to win her and impress her blustering father (Yorke Sherwood).

So we have the football game (where Harry manages to score a goal!), then his new job as a street cleaner. You can imagine - throwing rubbish and hitting a policeman; getting his sweeping brush caught in a lift. But the best bit of all is where Harry starts from being trapped on the floor under his brush handle in a crowded tube train, and plots to get as many passengers out as possible.

Langdon is an underrated and largely forgotten performer today, which is a shame. His facial reactions were as priceless as Stan Laurel's, while he had great timing for comic situations. I'd like to see much more of his work at festivals and on video.
