Tramp, Tramp, Tramp is a 1926 American silent comedy film directed by Harry Edwards and starring Harry Langdon and Joan Crawford.[1]

Premise

The film tells of Harry (Langdon) a ne'er-do-well who falls in love with Betty (Crawford), a girl on a billboard.[2] Harry participates in a cross country foot race hoping to win prize money in hopes of marrying her.

Cast

Critical reception

In a recent review of the 1926 film, critic Maria Schneider wrote, "Langdon was most often cast as an oblivious innocent adrift in a corrupt world, a formula that made him terrifically popular in the mid-1920s...An acquired taste, Harry Langdon's gentle absurdities and slow rhythms take some getting used to, but patient viewers will be rewarded."[3]

The staff at TV Guide gave the film a mixed review, writing, "An amusing and sunny outdoor comedy, Tramp, Tramp, Tramp seems weak only in comparison with Langdon's next feature, The Strong Man (1926), a much richer blend of laughs, thrills, and tears. Among the earlier film's deficiencies is an anemic story. The bulk of the movie is devoted to little more than a succession of pickles Harry gets himself into on his way west. Nothing is made of the fact that the Logans' landlord and the world walking champion are the same man. (If one isn't paying close attention, one may not be sure that they are the same man.) And someone should have thought up a more humorous or exciting way for Harry to win the marathon; a viewer's reconstruction of the script would simply note that 'Harry wins the race.'"[4]
