It was the last silent feature to star Harold Lloyd, 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.

I grew up watching many of Harold Lloyd's shorts and have remained a devotee of his talents. This film is a timeless story of good over bad, and more importantly is a time capsule of what New York looked like back in 1927. The additional footage of rare home movies from the Lloyd family and another silent movie from Lloyd makes this worth seeking out on DVD.
