Johnny takes flowers and a gift to his girl, but she is currently enraptured with an autographed picture of Milton Sills that has come in the mail, and she ignores Johnny.

Soon Johnny starts to wonder if he can ever please her. Written by Snow Leopard

On the Spot
23 May 2005 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Johnny Arthur was one of those silent comedians who turned out a goodly number of funny comedies, made a transfer to sound in small supporting roles and faded from the public's mind even as they continued working. Movies like this are why.

Johnny is in love with a girl who is movie struck and proclaims her devotion to various stars of the period. So Johnny changes his clothing and hair and style of moving to imitate her fancy of the moment. In doing so, he constructs a good pastiche but fails to assert an interesting or attractive personality of his own. How could he help but fade from sight given an opportunity? The last gag is the most telling: at the end, doing a passable Harold Lloyd imitation, he asks his leading lady, Virginia Vance, "How do you like me as Harold Lloyd." "I prefer my own Johnny," she answers. Perhaps we might have too.
