The most important family in Hickoryville is (naturally enough) the Hickorys, with sheriff Jim and his tough manly sons Leo and Olin. The timid youngest son, Harold, doesn't have the muscles to match up to them, so he has to use his wits to win the respect of his strong father and also the love of beautiful Mary.Written by

When Harold first climbs aboard the ship and falls onto the deck it is in bright sunlight. In subsequent shots that area is in the shade of the deck-house - indicating those shots were done at a different time of day, or even on the other side of the ship. See more »
Harold, the youngest Hickory, was born on April Fool's Day. The stork that brought him could hardly fly for laughing.

In 1990, The Harold Lloyd Trust and Photoplay Productions presented an 82-minute version of this film in association with Thames Television International, with a musical score written by Carl Davis. The addition of modern credits stretched the time to 83 minutes. See more »
Even though I had enjoyed several of Lloyd's films, I never really looked at him as being on the same level as Keaton. That's changed after seeing "The Kid Brother." The last half hour is as entertaining as anything on film. Harold's resourcefulness while fighting is a thing to behold! And the monkey with the shoes? Fantastic!
