Movie Info

By 1921, Harold Lloyd was gradually easing into full-length comedies. This was his second three-reel film; by the end of the year he would release A Sailor-Made Man at four reels and beginning with the film after that, Grandma's Boy, he would completely graduate into features. Here, Lloyd plays a coatroom boy who likes to impersonate a certain English nobleman. A family of social climbers are told that the real nobleman is to arrive in the U.S. They enlist the help of a "society pilot" (Vera White) to bring him to their home, and when she can't get the real lord, she uses Harold instead. He turns out to be a big hit, especially with the family's pretty daughter (Mildred Harris), and he weaves incredibly tall tales about his game hunts. When he mounts a horse to join a fox hunt, he winds up getting himself involved in a load of comic exploits that put his tall tales to shame.

Audience Reviews for Among Those Present

Of the two Harold Lloyd movies I watched that night, this one was the better. A lot funnier, the lengths they went to to achieve some of the physical comedy is amazing! The stunts are very impressive! The inbetween scene things were a lot funnier this time too and manage to make me chuckle. The actors manage to get most of the story across the screen with out speaking any words at all, and that is what is even more impressive. The music score also went well with the whole film. Still I can't say this is worth watching more then once. I'll have to see a lot more of his work before I become a fan.
