Wit, slapstick and a spectacular chase finale adorn Harold Lloyd's tale of a small-town young man who is too scared to talk to women. But, when he falls in love on a train, he stops at nothing to keep his beloved (the wonderful Jobyna Ralston) from the cad she is due to marry.

Rarely screened, Girl Shy is a tender and hilarious gem that reinforces Lloyd's status as one the finest silent comedians.
