MOVIE CRAZY (1932) B/W 82m dir: Clyde Bruckman
w/Harold Lloyd, Constance Cummings, Kenneth Thomson, Sydney Jarvis, Eddie Fetherstone
This is one of the most unfailingly hilarious films ever made, from its first moment to its last. Lloyd is a mistakenly self-confident young man who goes to Hollywood to make it in pictures and wins the love of movie star Cummings. Warm, distinctive human touches make this a joy to watch. Keep an eye out for the many gags concerning ducks, including the very first one, which is a pip!
From Variety's contemporary review of the film: "A corking comedy, replete with wow belly laughs. Sure-fire."
From Halliwell's Film Guide: "The silent comedian is not quite at his best in this early sound comedy, but it contains his last really superb sequences and its picture of Hollywood is both amusing and nostalgic."
