Harold Lloyd’s best sound film has him portraying Harold Hill, a small-town Kansas rube who dreams of making it in the movies. Upon his arrival in Hollywood, Harold manages to wreak havoc as soon as he steps off the train. He falls in love with a beautiful Spanish actress, failing to recognize that she is the same young woman, without makeup and wig, who later gives him a ride home in the rain. Mary Sears (Constance Cummings) keeps the two identities concealed from Harold and has him play the fool. Harold the lamb turns into Harold the lion in the film’s elaborate fight sequence on the set of a flooding boat in the film’s memorable climax. The film is also notable for the comedy sequence of Harold unknowingly wearing a magician’s coat at a formal dinner party, causing chaos with the small creatures that emerge from his jacket sleeves.
