"With the advent and proliferation of "Infomercials" and "Paid Programming" which have come to fill the late night air waves of nearly every television station in the country, one is no longer able to catch some of the little known classic films which brought so much pleasurable entertainment to earlier generations of Americans. One such case of a film fading away into obscurity is The Sin of Harold Diddlebock. Filled with witty humor and Harold Lloyd's flare for outrageous stunts, The Sin of Harold Diddlebock is a must-see film which brings the action-packed humor of the silent era into the modern age and lays the foundation for so much of what passes for comedy today. The Sin of Harold Diddlebock is a 'coming of age' story which takes a comic look at a tragic character - the American worker who, after being used up by his employer of over twenty years, is forced into retirement with nowhere to turn and no options for his future. When he finally learns to let go and get in touch with his younger self, to once again 'think,' the real action begins and he comically turns despair into the great American success story as he breaks with a number of closely held social conventions of his time. This is a hopeful, light-hearted, uplifting film. A must see for anyone who thinks that life might have passed them by."
