Comedy, Silent
Harold Lloyd was most effective playing a city slicker, but his Nebraska childhood inspired a few Keaton-esque exercises in Americana. In this 1927 silent feature he plays a small-town boy who runs afoul of his sheriff father after a beautiful woman (Jobyna Ralston) rolls into town with a traveling medicine show. In a wonderful point-of-view gag, shot with a makeshift elevator, he climbs ever higher in a tree to get a look at his beloved as she saunters down a valley, before passion gives way to the law of gravity. Ted Wilde and J.A. Howe directed.
