GRANDMA’S BOY

Plus rediscovered Harold Lloyd 2-reeler CAPTAIN KIDD'S KIDS (1919), featuring Bebe Daniels and "Snub" Pollard (with musical soundtrack).

(1922) Spineless coward Harold is inspired by grandma’s magic talisman and his “hero” granddad – in a Civil War Flashback that reportedly inspired Keaton’s The General – to finally take on the fearsome tramp terrorizing the neighborhood. Re-shot to add gags to his first feature with “heart,” it was Lloyd’s personal favorite.  Approx. 76 min. 35mm.
