Hey, guys, I just found an interesting little tidbit about the baby in the film! She was Tiny Doll, who was actually part of the Doll Family.
Yes, that is interesting and explains the mystery. I knew something unusual was up, there. So Tiny would have been about 13 when this was filmed, then. Good researching!

Thanks! I'm always very interested in children and animals in film. They're often very mysterious! 😁

Thanks for the trivia! I've seen members of the Doll family in Freaks.

Have you guys watched The Freshman yet? I'm dying for your thoughts!

I seen it multiple times but have not rewatched for this go-round yet. I will go ahead and say that, in my opinion, this one is definitely one of the comedic masterpieces of all time. I'd say it's probably Lloyd's best feature (though Safety Last comes pretty close to equaling it). And I think it's definitely Jobyna's best performance in any of the Lloyd features.

Have you watched it yet?

Yup! Follow this link for comments on the film. This was my first time watching it.

I watched The Freshman. My comments are going to be all over the place, because I'm thinking of things as they come to mind.
Sorry I didn't see your comments earlier. I saw the reviews (thanks for those!), but missed the "spoiler" up there. :)

So... I've also already seen this film before, and I think I already posted my thoughts on it before? I did rewatch but noticed nothing new, so I'm not really sure what to say other than respond to some points made:
