♪ Live piano accompaniment by Steve Sterner

United States, 1922
Directed by Fred Newmeyer
Starring Harold Lloyd, Mildred Davis
Approx. 60 min. 35mm.


Spineless coward Harold Lloyd is inspired by grandma’s magic talisman and his “hero” granddad — in a Civil War flashback that reportedly inspired Keaton’s The General — to finally take on the fearsome tramp terrorizing the neighborhood. Re-shot to add gags to his first feature with “heart,” this was Lloyd’s personal favorite.

Reviews

“One of the best constructed screenplays I have ever seen.”
