comedy couldn't get a laugh out of me."
by Dennis Schwartz
Roach ("Turnabout"/"Ask Father"/"Bumping
into Broadway") directs this lesser Harold Lloyd
silent slapstick comedy. The script is co co-written
by Roach and Sam Taylor.
Lloyd and Mildred Davis are newlyweds.
They babysit at their suburban home for Mildred's
brother's baby boy and his toddler brother (Jack
Morgan). The toddler is destructively naughty and
Harold takes his lumps via pratfalls watching him.
There's also fear of a burglar terrorizing his
neighborhood, as a suspicious character watching his
house causes alarm.
