"Speedy" loses his job as a soda-jerk, then spends the day with his girl at Coney Island. He then becomes a cab driver and delivers Babe Ruth to Yankee Stadium, where he stays to see the game. When the railroad tries to run the last horse-drawn trolley (operated by his girl's grandfather) out of business, "Speedy" organizes the neighborhood oldtimers to thwart their scheme.

During the Coney Island magic mirror scene, Harold Lloyd
gives the middle finger to his reflection in the mirror. This obscene gesture was permitted by censors in motion pictures prior to the enforcement of the draconian Hays Code in 1934 and can be seen in a number of other contemporary films such as The Lost Squadron
(1932). See more
When Speedy (Harold Swift) gets his summons to appear in court for his reckless driving, it's dated July 30, and he's to appear on August 27, 1927. A minute later he reads the "Last Minute News" column in the paper about Babe Ruth signing baseballs, and it says at the bottom (before they focus on the ball signing particulars) that he hit his 58th home run yesterday. He did that on September 29, 1927 (and actually hit two that day, bringing his total to 59). By July 30 of that year, he had "only" hit 34 home runs. See more

Well, I ain't got nothin', so if I don't get nothin' - I won't have nothin' less than I've got.
