Among Those Present
Harold Lloyd’s bellhop enjoys posing as a gentleman under cover of clothes dropped off at coat check by the rich clientele. “Gee! If I only had the glad rags. I could act like any of these swells.” He gets his chance when a scoundrel dresses him up as Lord Abernathy to take advantage of a social climbing family’s fox hunt. Lloyd is more interested in Mrs. O’Brien’s daughter than the foxes but before he can clinch the romance he’ll dodge dogs, lions, skunks, bears, an unbroken horse and a spiked punch bowl. Fiercest of all is the matron's desire to be "respectable." AMONG THOSE PRESENT pokes fun at aristocratic pretensions but Lloyd is genial enough to take on most of the pratfalls himself.
