Such a wonderful showcase of Harold Lloyd's talents and vision. Amazing work for that day and age. Watch the camera angles lighting. Perfect!

I like it when a silent comedy commits strongly to a certain kind of gag. If Harold Lloyd has a super-power in The Kid Brother, it's the power to hide in plain sight or use optical illusions to create diversions. They use that idea in as many ways as they can and it's always quite delightful. I would also include the tree-climbing scene in that since it plays on perspective (and Safety Last! creates a desire in the audience to see Lloyd climb more things). The story? Lloyd is the youngest of a clan of sheriffs and deputies, but never given a chance to shine. Until a girl rolls in with a medicine show, that is, and young love emboldens him (happily, it's Jobyna Ralston, who was his great co-star in The Freshman). As is usual in his films, the comedy is often more character-based than physical, but ends on a huge physical sequence, this one including a fierce fight scene and several vehicles. By golly, young Harold will prove he's a Hickory yet.

I would like to buy this film, not The Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm!

A movie so boring that it seems to be twice longer than it actually is.
