Harold Lloyd -- A Super-Dreadnaught Comedy -- December 5, 2021

Some people consider the four reel "A Sailor Made Man" to be Harold Lloyd's last short, while others call it his first feature. The movie is packed with stereotypes, but it is still funny. "A Super-Dreadnaught Comedy With No Limitations on Laughter" -- This referred to the Washington Naval Treaty which would limit the number and size of warships that countries could build.

Harold's next film, "He Who Hesitates" was to be another four-reeler. It wound up being called Grandma's Boy and was five reels, long enough to be considered a feature.
