Bashful, 1917

 First viewing

I’ve never seen a Harold Lloyd joynt all the way through, and never one this early. But the man just sparkles. This is a story about a shy boy who needs to pretend to have a wife and baby to get an inheritance. Mild hilarity ensues. Bebe Daniels is adorable as the girl who pretends to be his wife.

Computer, please translate.

Here he is shy and dancing alone, mimicking a dancer in a grass skirt at a party.

Bebe Daniels is one of those new modern girls.

A telegram and a relative arrive.

Bebe Daniels makes this face then everything works out in the end.
