♪ Live Piano Accompaniment by Steve Sterner

U.S., 1924
Directed by Fred C. Newmeyer
Starring Harold Lloyd, Jobyna Ralston
Approx. 81 min. 35mm print courtesy Harold Lloyd Trust.

In “arguably the greatest chase in film history” (Richard Shnickel), Harold Lloyd desperately tries to reach his girl’s marriage to a bigamist via car, truck, police car, fire truck, horse wagon, motorcycle, and anything else available.


“A serious contender for Lloyd’s greatest silent movie.”
– Jaime N. Christley, The Village Voice

“Mixes comedy and sentiment with a spectacular chase finale.”
– Leonard Maltin, Classic Movie Guide

“Shows how rewardingly complex silent Hollywood storytelling could be. It reveals Lloyd as a master craftsman of cinematic resources… It’s developed in funny or poignant detail at every instant.”
– David Bordwell
