Paul Merton continues his selection of the best of the great silent comics with this Harold Lloyd classic, featuring giant (8ft. 9″) Johan Aasen’s appearance as Colosso. Lloyd stars as millionaire hypochondriac Harold Van Pelham, who sets sail for a tropical South American island for his health. Rather than rest and relaxation, Pelham finds himself inadvertently in the midst of revolution.
