Film Series: For Heaven’s Sake

1926. USA. Dir: Sam Taylor. With Har- old Lloyd, Jobyna Ralston. Approx. 80 min, including shorts. 35mm print.


When a dorky millionaire tries to pay damages on a push cart he knocked over, he somehow finds himself sponsoring a downtown mission. Shenanigans only escalate from there, climaxing with a harrying ride atop a hurtling bus. Lloyd’s masterful gag construction made this among the most popular films of the silent era.
