Brief Synopsis – A piano player in the old west gets into trouble while playing in a saloon

My Take on it – Just because a movie is very short, doesn’t mean it can’t be good.

This is a great example by the legendary Harold Lloyd.

It has some really funny scenes set in a Western saloon and even watching it almost 100 years after it was made, still elicits laughter while watching.

Lloyd really was a comic genius and this is further proof that he knew what kind of things to do to make the audience laugh.

Bottom Line – Has some really funny scenes. Lloyd really knew how to make you laugh. Short but sweet.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Like many American films of the time, Two-Gun Gussie was subject to restrictions and cuts by city and state film censorship boards. For example, the Chicago Board of Censors cut the vulgar action of a man after being shot in the posterior (From Wikipedia)

Rating – Globe Worthy
