When the boys learn that an old woman is going to lose her hotel, they decide to help her raise money to save the place. Our guys help her spruce up the joint (with their usual success). They then put on a big show with Curly accidentally ending up wearing a magician’s coat. What could go wrong?
Thoughts (beware of spoilers)…
Four years after Loco Boy Makes Good‘s release, Harold Lloyd, the silent film star, sued Columbia Pictures for copyright infringement. Lloyd won. Clyde Buckman, the director of Loco Boy Makes Good also directed Lloyd’s film Movie Crazy. Both featured the same magician’s coat sequence.
Loco Boy Makes Good earns 4 of 5 stars.
