A Sailor-Made Man
Directed by Fred Newmeyer • 1921 • United States
Starring Harold Lloyd, Mildred Davis, Noah Young
Though originally intended as a two-reel short, A SAILOR-MADE MAN wound up becoming Harold Lloyd’s first feature—simply because there were too many good gags to cut! Here, our bespectacled hero plays a wealthy, idle playboy who, in order to prove his worth to the father of the girl he hopes to marry, joins the Navy. When his sweetheart is kidnapped by a Middle Eastern maharaja, it’s up to the greenhorn sailor to find his sea legs and save the day.
