For Heaven’s Sake
Directed by Sam Taylor • 1926 • United States
Starring Harold Lloyd, Jobyna Ralston, Paul Weigel
Feckless millionaire playboy J. Harold Manners (Harold Lloyd) leads a life of idle abandon, until he meets and falls in love with a poor minister’s daughter (Jobyna Ralston). His attempts to reform his ways by helping to build up her father’s mission, however, lead to more than a few complications. Lloyd’s follow-up to THE FRESHMAN is one of his more loosely plotted features, allowing for a profusion of fast-paced sight gags that climax in a memorably thrilling car chase across Los Angeles.
