Movie Crazy is a 1932 American Pre-Code comedy film starring Harold Lloyd in his third sound feature.

Plot

Harold Hall, a young man with little or no acting ability, desperately wants to be in the movies.

After a mix-up with his application photograph, he gets an offer to have a screen-test, and goes off to Hollywood. At the studio, he does everything wrong and causes all sorts of trouble. But he catches the fancy of a beautiful actress, and eventually the studio owner recognizes him as a comic genius.

Cast

Background

The film was a major box office success. An estimated $675,000 was spent on the production and the film grossed over $1,439,000 in the United States alone. The film also proved to be a major critical success as the vast majority of film reviewers praised the picture highly.[2]

Renewed interest in Harold Lloyd

In 1962, scenes from this film were included in a compilation film produced by Harold Lloyd himself entitled Harold Lloyd's World of Comedy. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and created a renewal of interest in the comedian by introducing him to a whole new generation.[]
