Lloyd Gold?

A tipsy doctor encounters his patient (Mildred Davis) sleepwalking on a building ledge, high above the street. A subplot has Lloyd and his friend (Roy Brooks) getting inebriated on homemade liquor and then trying to avoid a prohibition-era policeman who pursues them for being drunk. Certain aspects of this film are clearly anticipating Lloyd's more famous skyscraper-scaling scenes in "Safety Last!" and this short would make a good pairing with that film. (Criterion matches it with "The Freshman", which is fine, too.) Another reviewer commented, "It's obvious Lloyd is talented, but was still learning what roles were going to work best for him down the road." The film is further described as "uneven". I suppose I can relate. While I like this one, I will easily agree it does not rank among Lloyd's best work.

Out On A Ledge With Mr. Lloyd

A Hal Roach HAROLD LLOYD Comedy Short. An intoxicated Harold goes HIGH AND DIZZY when he tries to rescue the dangerously sleepwalking girl of his dreams. This very funny film puts Harold for a few precarious minutes out on a ledge, thereby becoming one of the ‘thrill pictures' for which he is mostly remembered, especially by those who've not seen much of his work. The film was produced not long after the freak accident which destroyed half of his right hand, hence the gloves. Harold's eventual wife, Mildred Davis, plays the lovely Girl here; her longtime chum, Roy Brooks, plays the inebriated bootlegger with whom Harold shares an elaborate extended drunken sequence. Mr. Brooks would later become Harold's personal assistant at Green Acres, the Lloyd estate.
