Nolan Barth's rating of the film The Freshman

"I'm just a regular fellow ! -- and I want you to step right up and call me 'Speedy'!" This is a delightful, little hidden gem from the silent era. Harold Lloyd is right up there with slapstick legends like Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, but for some reason I feel he isn't as well known as Chaplin and Keaton. This is a fun film with a surprising amount of heart.
