Outstanding silent comedy, with some really amazing stunts, which Lloyd did himself. Brand new score. Loaded with extras. ( )

A store clerk arranges a building-scaling promotional stunt.

One of Lloyd's worst films. I can see why people like the climbing sequence (even though it's just a less-funny variant on a bit he's done before), but that only makes up a small part of an otherwise bad movie. It's like the first two thirds of the movie exist purely to make you not sympathize with Harold.
