Storyline

Through all the trials and tribulations a boy is having in getting a photograph taken to give to the girl he loves and wants to marry, the boy learns from the photographer that the girl is already scheduled to marry someone else that afternoon, the wedding which the boy is too late to stop. In getting over the girl, the boy can focus in on the fact that he only has two more payments until the shiny new motorized vehicle in his outdoor shed will be his outright. On a day out to appear in a community theater production, the boy finds that the car and associated items are giving him more trouble than he wants. His difficulty in getting to the theater because of the car may inadvertently provide him an opportunity to win back the girl. Written by Huggo

Good Harold Lloyd Comedy
12 October 2004 | by Snow LeopardSee all my reviews

This is a good Harold Lloyd comedy that gets plenty of mileage out of the material, and it has quite a few amusing moments. It is one of many silent comedies that take one situation and then stretch it out as far as possible.

The top silent comedians such as Lloyd could often find quite a variety of possibilities in a simple premise.

In this case, most of the story has Harold in a desperate rush to get where he is going. The number of obstacles he encounters is pretty creative, from the expected, such as an uncooperative automobile, to unexpected obstacles such as a friendly little boy and a cute dog. There is some decent slapstick, and there are also some good sight gags, a couple of which might be the movie's best moments. It works pretty well overall.
