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.
The Uptown Boy, J. Harold Manners (Lloyd) is a millionaire playboy who falls for the Downtown Girl, Hope (Ralston) who works in Brother Paul's (Weigel) mission. In order to build up attendance, and win Hope's attention, Harold runs through town causing trouble, and winds up with a crowd chasing him right into the mission. He eventually wins the girl and they marry, but not without some interference from his high-brow friends.Written by

At the beginning of the film, Lloyd is driving a 1923 Dusenberg Model A. Depending on condition, that car could be worth several hundreds of thousands of dollars in 2018. After that, he buys a 1927 Packard Eight Phaeton for $9,000 ($126,500 in 2018). With the Dusenberg costing about the same at the time, Lloyd wrecks two cars costing the equivalent of over one quarter of a million dollars in 2018. See more »
In the runaway bus sequence, when Harold is on the topless bus trying to gain access to the wheel, his boater is knocked toward the rear of the bus by the banner hanging over the roadway. In the next scene, we see him wearing the hat and climbing onto the bonnet of the bus. When he slips on the banana peel and falls down by the front lights he is no longer wearing the hat. When he crashes through the windscreen, again, the hat is not with him. When the motorcycle policeman attempts to ticket him, however, he grabs the boater from the inside of the vehicle and makes good his escape. See more »

Harold Lloyd in his prime as a multi-millionaire who thinks nothing of buying - and trashing - two cars in one day, and who funds a mission for the poor without realising it. He wants nothing to do with it until he spies the minister's comely daughter (Jobyna Ralston). Some decent jokes, an hilarious chase sequence, and a hair-raising race to the altar on a driverless bus help place this, perhaps lesser-known entry, amongst the comedian's better works.
