After Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, the silent film eras third genius was Harold Lloyd, who stars in this Horatio Alger-style story of an average country boy trying to make good in the big city. The Boy (Lloyd) leaves his sweetheart, The Girl (Mildred Davis, later the real-life Mrs. Lloyd) in Great Bend while he pursues his fortune in a teeming metropolis. The Boy lands a job as a clerk at a fabric counter of DeVores, a huge department store, but he lies in his letters home to his beloved, pretending to be the stores manager and spending his earnings on lavish gifts. The Boys roommate, The Pal (Bill Strother) makes money as a human fly, performing attention-getting stunts. Promised $1,000 by DeVores real manager if he can devise a publicity gimmick, The Boy convinces his friend to climb the 12-story establishment and split the winnings with him. On the day of the event, however, The Pal is busy dodging The Law (Noah Young), forcing The Boy to make the arduous climb solo. Dodging a variety of obstacles, The Boy climbs higher and higher, eventually dangling from the stores clock tower, in the films most memorable image.~ Karl Williams, All Movie Guide
