Why Worry? 1923

why worry

Harold Van Pelham (Harold Lloyd) is filthy rich — but what good does it do him when he’s always sick? To get over his multitude of real or imaginary ailments, he goes for a much-needed vacation to sunny South America. Everything’s going fine until the revolution breaks out. Instead of lying on the beach, Harold has landed in jail. Lucky for him, the big guy sharing his cell, Colosso (John Aasen), is friendly. After a daring jailbreak, the two come to the rescue of Harold’s kidnapped nurse.

Are Crooks Dishonest? 1918

 

Are crooks dishonest

A pretty straightforward Lloyd film in which he and Snub are con man buddies and meet their match in com woman Bebe Daniels. As fun as this sounds there isn’t anything terribly distinctive about it. I did like the tandem handstand kick that Harold and Snub do toward the end to escape an attacker.
