The Kid Brother (1927)

The Kid Brother is a 1927 Harold Lloyd film. Popular when it was released, it's still considered one of Lloyd's best and is included in the book 1,001 Movies to See Before You Die.

The NYT review from 1927
opens its review with this:
Enough laughter was generated yesterday in the Rialto Theatre by Harold Lloyd's new comedy to make thousands forget the gloomy weather. In this eventful and hilarious production, called "The Kid Brother," Mr. Lloyd displays no little ingenuity, none of his gags being inspired by any other comedian.
Rotten Tomatoes doesn't have enough critic reviews for a score, but the audience rating is 84%.
