Gasping thrills and fun in Hawaii! Aboard an ocean liner! In an air-plane! On the tall tower of a sky-scraper! With Harold feet first always! (Print Ad- Poughkeepsie Eagle-News, ((Poughkeepsie NY)) 7 November 1930) See more »
A mild mannered young man, working at the bottom rung of a shoe shop, falls for a high society girl and tries to reinvent himself. Lloyd's second talkie is really divided into three sections; working and meeting the girl, unwittingly traveling on a cruise ship, and then hanging onto a high rise building for his life. However, it's well below the standard of the best of Harold's silents (like the lovely "The Kid Brother"). The film does get better as it goes (the ship and building sections do become reasonably entertaining, if nothing else), but it's rarely very funny, and one can't help but think it would have worked better as a silent.
