Kid Brother Kid Brother Kid Brother
In this 1927 silent movie starring Harold Lloyd, Lloyd picks up a stick without looking at it to fight off a man who is trying to rape a young woman (Jobyna Ralston.) Unknown to Lloyd, the stick has a gopher snake wrapped around it. (A dead snake is wrapped around the stick. Later we see a live one, probably a San Diego Gopher Snake since it was filmed in Southern Calfiornia.) Lloyd waves the stick threateningly and is surprised that the attacker runs away, not knowing that it was the snake that scared him away. Then Lloyd accidentaly touches the snake, which terrifies him too. He throws the stick onto the ground and we see a snake crawl away quickly, which scares Ralston who jumps into Lloyd's arms, as women tended to do in those days.
