Movie Info

Even taking into consideration such worthy candidates as Safety Last and The Freshman, many Harold Lloyd fans regard The Kid Brother as his finest film. A humorous variation on Tol'able David, the film stars Lloyd as Harold Hickory, the youngest member of the rural Hickory family.

The first silent film I ever saw that made me actually stand up and cheer… As a first introduction to silent film, I would pick The Kid Brother over the best of Chaplin or Keaton every time.

Audience Reviews for The Kid Brother

Although the story is predictable, this movie is hilarious and very entertaining. I really liked Lloyd and the rest of the cast, they did a great job in their roles. The slapstick comedy doesn't take center stage, it's balanced with the story and the action. And it has a great ending. I recommend seeing this movie.
