If and when Robert Cummings is free from his Universal troubles he will make a picture for Harold Lloyd. Harold, who is just back from a Shrine convention in the East, cannot discuss the Cummings deal because Judge Hollzer, to whom the Cummings vs. Universal case went, has not yet handed down his final decision.

“The Freshman,” which many people regard as Harold’s best, was run a few weeks ago for Preston Sturges, who is crazy about the story and the idea. The plan now is to bring it up to date, with Bob doing the Lloyd role. We could do with a few pictures on the order of “The Freshman,” “Grandma’s Boy” and others of this ilk.
