Number, Please?

Number, Please? ★★★½

You can actually pinpoint the second when Harold Lloyd's heart rips in half! An otherwise fun two-reeler that packs in a few extended gags with great payoffs gets a surprisingly downbeat ending for the era. While not bleak by any stretch, Lloyd finishing last against all odds makes for quite an outlier and it is certainly notable if only for that. But with some inspired photography, shockingly good-humored racial representation for 1920 (including an absolutely killer "multiple people in a long overcoat" gag) and the aforementioned quality of the gags, there's a lot to recommend here beyond that curiosity.
