Kimball Organ Series: Grandma’s Boy
The residents of a small town organize a team to track down a killer on the loose. The town’s entire male population joins the hunt, save one jittery youth (Harold Lloyd) who wants nothing to do with a murderer. He instead retreats to his grandma’s house. She tells him a fantastic story that rouses his confidence, and hands him a talisman that supposedly holds the power of bravery. Unaware he’s been given an ordinary piece of wood, the young man decides to chase the criminal by himself.
