Mad Wednesday

1950, Movie, NR, 79 mins

Far from Sturges's best, but intermittently hilarious. The film follows Harold Diddlebock, hero of Lloyd's classic silent THE FRESHMAN, into middle age. Harold is now a frumpy, office-bound bookkeeper with his glory days behind him. Fired from his job after two decades of toil, he goes on a drunken spree, and, in as unlikely a series of events as you'll ever see, wakes up the owner of a moth-eaten and bankrupt circus. Eventually Lloyd winds up reprising the silent comedy scene from SAFETY LAST for which he is perhaps most famous--hanging from a tall building, this time with a huge lion menacing him.

The idea of combining comic aces Lloyd and Sturges sounds high...
