A department store clerk goes to extreme lengths in order to win the approval of his intended, including lying, risking starvation, and undertaking death-defying feats, in Lloyd’s most celebrated feature, a cynically satirical and shamelessly romantic film, which features several wonderfully timed set-pieces and a cracking central performance.
