Summary
It was the last silent feature to star Harold Lloyd (Safety Last!), and one of his very best. The slapstick legend reprises his 'Glasses Character,' this time as a good-natured but scatterbrained New Yorker who can't keep a job. He finally finds his true calling when he becomes determined to help save the city's last horse-drawn trolley, which is operated by his sweetheart's crusty grandfather.
