Audience Reviews for His Royal Slyness

While it's only 20 minutes in length and not one of his masterpieces, His Royal Slyness is still a hilarious two-reeler that packs a lot into it's short running time. There are some very funny and well timed sight gags and a riot as the film draws near to it's close with the whole kingdom going into a frenzy. This was also apparently the last film before Lloyd had a prop bomb (He was doing a photoshoot at the time) that blew up and caused serious burns, damage to his eye, and tore off two of his fingers.
