How can ANYONE rate or review this movie???!!??!!??
4 May 2006 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Since the movie was only shown once and the last time was about 80 years ago, how can anyone review this film or give a rating score??!! To make this appeal to others NOT to rate or review this film, I was forced by IMDb to give a rating but how could I?!?! Unless someone who is well into their upper 90s or older can come forward and rate and review this film, I really don't think it makes any sense at all to speculate about this picture. Groucho supposedly said it was lousy and this is probably the best available assessment of the film. And, how can the film have a rating of over 7? It seems that fans of the comedy team are voting on how popular or good the group is WITHOUT REGARD TO WHETHER OR NOT THEY SAW THE FILM! My opinion is that if you haven't seen this film, don't rate it! And, if you know where there is a hidden copy of the film, sell it and make a fortune and earn the undying gratitude of Marxophiles!

By the way, another reason it's sad that this film probably no longer exists is that Harold Lloyd fans can see two of his frequent co-stars (one of which who became Mrs. Lloyd) in the film--Mildred Davies (Mrs. Lloyd) and Jobyna Ralston. Too bad...
