Nearly forgotten today, Harry Langdon was considered a serious rival to Chaplin and Keaton in the late 20s. An ex-vaudeville comedian, discovered and equipped with a new screen personality by Frank Capra, Langdon rocketed to popularity with a series of shorts made for Mack Sennett. With Capra on staff, Langdon made this first feature, directed by Harry Edwards, about a cross-country walking race, in 1926, and followed its success with two more films before canning Capra and striking out on his own. Failure was swift and irreversible, but Langdon's films still seem to have the mark of a genuine, if rarefied, talent. 62 min.
