Movie Info

Harold Lloyd stars in a double role in this film, one of his most popular and enduring comedy classics. When he is chosen as a member of a posse to capture a notorious criminal, Harold confides in his grandmother (Hannah Townsend) that he is really a coward. She explains how his grandfather overcame his cowardice to capture some important military papers during the Civil War. She gives him a good luck charm that is really only the handle to an old umbrella. Harold has the courage to single handedly capture the fugitive without the use of a weapon. His heroism endears him to the girl (Mildred Davis) before he discovers his courage came from within and not from the charm.

Audience Reviews for Grandma's Boy


This movie is funny, but the story is predictable and cliched. Overall it's pretty good though, and if you like Lloyd's work you should see it, but it could have been better.
