In the film, Harold Lloyd plays a grandma’s boy who is too timid to court the girl that he likes as he is scared of rival. His grandmother provides a solution to the problem — a charm that will give Harold courage. The plan was to seize an outlaw and win the girl’s heart.

Here is an excerpt of the film.

Grandma’s Boy was a great success during the silent film era. It was one of the movies that helped shape the future of silent film features. Although the film was full of gags, it also gave way to character arches which helped make the movie a big success.

The 60-minute film was released on 8mm film on September 3, 1922.
