Movie Info

A virginal small-town young man pens a How-To book on the secrets of lovemaking, emboldening him to claim back the girl he loves just as she approaches the altar. This side-splitting Harold Lloyd classic features an impressive chase finale and a climax lifted and reused in The Graduate(1967).

It's a modestly entertaining physical comedy with a spectacular classic closing chase scene, and with Lloyd doing all the stunts.

Audience Reviews for Girl Shy

With his own production company, Lloyd continued showing up other silent stars with the physicality inherent in his style of comedy. Watch closely and you'll notice a handful of continuity errors so common in other silent films.

I'm really surprised this story hasn't been recycled - funny and romantic and doesn't feel the least bit dated.

First film I ever saw at the Silent Film Festival in San Francisco. Great Harold Lloyd- featuring the great streetcar scene. The rest is fantastic as well - eat your hearts out Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton!
