Just Rambling Along

Hal Roach | 1918 | ★★★★
A young man follows a pretty girl to a beachside diner, but is turned away for lack of funds. Luckily, there is young boy outside – rich pickings for a bit of daylight robbery. Once inside, he manages to sample, steal, and grift his way towards a ten cent meal, but doesn’t count on the equally shameless girl playing the old cheque switcheroo. Delightfully irreverent, with a brilliant central performance from the young Stan Laurel, Just Rambling Along proves wonderfully entertaining.
