Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film The Freshman

Harold Lloyd is often considered the third genius of the silent era in terms of comedy. This may be true, but he certainly isn't anywhere near on the heels of Chaplin and Keaton if this film is anything to go by. He's at least a couple of miles behind them in his comic ingenuity, command of filmmaking, and general likeability.
