“This was comedian Harold Lloyd’s last silent film and one of his most charming, […] shot on location in a Manhattan that now looks almost quaint for all its concrete and steel. Baseball legend Babe Ruth had a cameo role, playing himself as a very harassed fare when Speedy is working as a cabbie. Their wild ride ends at the old Yankee Stadium. Other historically interesting sites include Coney Island, Columbus Circle and Wall Street as they were in 1928, [and] a spectacular trolley crash at the Brooklyn Bridge—this accident was not planned, but was left in the film anyhow. At the time of this picture’s release, Lloyd was a top box-office draw, a bigger moneymaker than Chaplin [and] Keaton.”
Janiss Garza, All Rovi
