The Freshman, 1925. An enthusiastically oblivious dork goes to college.
Directed by Fred C. Newmeyer & Sam Taylor. Written by Taylor, Ted Wilde, John Grey & Tim Whelan. Starring Harold Lloyd.
Pacing: Most sequences go on for too long, except for the romantic scenes, which are too short. C
Special effects/design: C
Enjoyment: Pleasant and cute. It's a character driven story, which is a big change of pace for Harold. Hopefully he sticks with this approach - he's just not funny enough for feature-length slapstick. C
