They Go Wild, Simply Wild Over Snub?
13 January 2017 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Harold Lloyd and Snub are adrift at sea, when they spot a desert island. It turns out that Bud Jamison is the assistant sultan and Bebe Daniels is a harem girl in this Lonesome Luke comedy.

I am not fond of Lloyd's Lonesome Luke shorts. They are hard-knock slapstick, with the emphasis on brutality. However, this one has a story that makes a silly sort of sense and two very good gags that were a complete surprise to me, so it is certainly enjoyable. I believe Snub proposed the gags -- when he got his own series at Roach, he built them by devising the plot, such as it was, as a way to get from one gag to another, and he executed them flawlessly.

However, Lloyd would go another way: he would abandon Luke and work on a new character, whom he called "The Boy" and Roach called "The glass character." A realistic enough individual that the audience could identify with, who did crazy things.

There's none of that here, but there is good slapstick with good gags. Good enough.
