Feet First is full of Harold Lloyd gags, stunts and tricks, all in a comedy vein, as always. Dialog is the same way.
Feet First is full of Harold Lloyd gags, stunts and tricks, all in a comedy vein, as always. Dialog is the same way.That Lloyd was a bit pressed himself for laughs during the lengthy period taken to make Feet First may be guessed from the fact that he is again dangling along the front of a skyscraper building. Once more Lloyd gets into all conceivable tangles from the 15th to the 21st stories, doing his acrobatics, escaping death a dozen times, using slapstick besides, and Perhaps prolonging this scene too far. Another stretch of laughs is where Lloyd is on the boat, aboard without baggage or money, from Honolulu to Frisco. He falls for a girl (Barbara Kent) who is on the same boat. She thinks he is a big businessman. Lloyd’s endeavor is to prevent her from discovering he is a shoe salesman.
