When a traveling medicine show rolls into town, it brings with it excitement, the possibility of love, and a chance for Harold to prove his mettle. Deftly balancing Lloyd's brilliant sight gags and thrilling set pieces, which include an epic, knock-down, drag-out fight aboard an abandoned ship, the film is a hilarious and heartwarming high-water mark of early screen comedy.
