Storyline

Two business owners are facing problems. A Lothario of a photographer has been threatened over the telephone by a jealous husband for hitting on his wife, one of his photography clients. An unscrupulous greengrocer is being pursued by the police for his exorbitant prices. The two business owners, unaware of the other's problem, meet by chance, the photographer who offers the management of his business to the greengrocer in hopes that the jealous husband will mistake his new manager as the one who hit on his wife. The greengrocer uses his unique artistic sensibility on the clients who wander through the photography studio. But when the jealous husband with his wife in tow arrive, the confusion that arises, only exacerbated by the addition of a window cleaner, leads to a happily ever after for the two that emerge in tact from the confusion.

Pretty Bland Comedy

Look Pleasant, Please (1918)

** (out of 4)

A group of women go to have their pictures taken but the photographer is somewhat of a creep as he can't keep his hands off them. This doesn't sit well for one woman (Bebe Daniels) who calls her husband (Bud Jamison) who threatens to kill the photographer. Before he gets there however, an innocent man (Harold Lloyd) takes over the job and he doesn't realize the trouble he's in. LOOK PLEASANT, PLEASE is a pretty weak comedy and in fact there's really not any laughs. The basic "story" is pretty simple as you wait and wait and then wait some more for the husband to show up but this doesn't happen until the very end of the film. Everything leading up to that was pretty boring as Lloyd finds himself taking pictures even though he hasn't a clue to what he's doing. For the most part we just get a group of people showing up and Lloyd makes them pose in weird positions. It's just not funny. I will say that the comic legend does a nice job with the part and he certainly keeps it a lot more interesting than it deserves to be. Daniels pretty much disappears from the picture so she can't add much and the same is true for Jamison who just doesn't get anything to do.
