Entertainment Reviews:

A.V. Club - 03/26/2014
"THE FRESHMAN was so successful that Keaton wound up making his own campus comedy, 1927's COLLEGE, but this was Lloyd's natural milieu."
Sight and Sound - 02/01/2015
"This is in many ways the archetypal Harold Lloyd movie....It was part of Lloyd's considerable charm that he admitted no limit to American possibility..."

Product Description:

One of Harold Lloyd's best feature-length comedies, THE FRESHMAN, features the bespectacled regular guy as Harold Lamb, a naïve young man who heads off to college believing campus life will be just as it is in the movies; he even learns a little dance he saw one of his favorite actors do in a film. However, Harold soon discovers that real life isn't all that much like the pictures, and he quickly becomes the laughing stock of the university. Determined to prove himself, Harold tries out for the football team, but he serves as water boy and rides the pine until he finally gets a chance to redeem himself at the big game. Along the way, Harold also tries to woo a lovely co-ed, Peggy (Jobyna Ralston). 22 years later, writer/director Preston Sturges used the climactic football game as the opening for his collaboration with Harold Lloyd, THE SIN OF HAROLD DIDDLEBOCK.
