High and Dizzy (1920)


This a Covid-19 2020 minireview!

“The Time – That never to-be-forgotten period when cloves, cork-screws and foot-rails went out of fashion ” – Title Card

Number of Times Seen – 1 (20 Jun 2020)

Brief Synopsis – During Prohibition, a drunk doctor finds a patient sleepwalking on the roof of a building and must try and help her.

Bottom Line – Fun Harold Lloyd film that shows his comic genius. The way that he presents many of the scenes is quite funny because of his influence on the camera angles and the slapstick. The film is quite short, yet is still able to be quite profound in its message.  The antics that this character endures throughout the film is hilarious and things might have been even better if the story would have had a bit more meat on it.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Features a scene with a character walking precariously on the outside ledge of a tall building, anticipating Lloyd’s more famous skyscraper-scaling scenes in Safety Last! (1923) (From Wikipedia)

Rating – Globe Worthy (8/10)
