Directed by Fred Newmeyer and Sam Taylor • 1924 • United States
Starring Harold Lloyd, Jobyna Ralston, Richard Daniels
He may be completely inept around girls in real life, but that doesn’t stop poor tailor’s apprentice Harold Meadows (Harold Lloyd) from publishing “The Secret of Making Love,” his guidebook on how to woo women. When romance finally does come along—in the form of a wealthy, already-engaged heiress (Jobyna Ralston)—can this bumbling boy put his own advice into practice? Lloyd’s first independent feature (following his association with Hal Roach) features an epic, two-reel chase climax that may be the comedian’s finest.
