Long Pants is a silent film released in 1927, featuring Harry Langdon in the lead role as a socially awkward young man named Harry. The movie is a comedy that revolves around Harry's attempt at wooing the girl of his dreams, played by Gladys Brockwell. Harry is a 27-year-old man who has never grown out of his childish ways. He still dresses like a little boy and behaves in ways that are deemed inappropriate for his age. Despite his oddity, Harry is a sweet-natured person who is kind to everyone he meets.

The movie begins with Harry living with his overbearing mother, played by Florence Turner. Harry feels stifled by his mother's overprotectiveness and yearns for some independence. One day, while Harry is out running errands for his mother, he meets Queenie, played by Gladys Brockwell, and instantly falls in love with her.

Queenie is a beautiful young woman who has been shunned by society due to her reputation as a gold digger. However, Harry is undeterred and, with some encouragement from his friend, he sets out to win Queenie's heart.

Harry, who is still dressed in his usual little boy outfit, decides that he needs to look more sophisticated to impress Queenie. He borrows a pair of long pants from his friend and puts on a top hat, but his awkwardness gets the better of him, and he ends up making a fool of himself.

Despite his initial setback, Harry persists in his quest to win Queenie's heart. He follows her to a nightclub where she is performing and tries to woo her with his awkward dance moves. Although Queenie is initially unimpressed, she eventually warms up to Harry's innocent charm and agrees to go on a date with him.

However, their date doesn't go as planned, and Harry's awkwardness gets the better of him once again. He accidentally sets Queenie's skirt on fire and ends up getting arrested for causing a commotion in the street.

The rest of the movie follows Harry's misadventures as he tries to prove his innocence and win back Queenie's heart. With the help of his friend and a sympathetic detective, played by Alan Roscoe, Harry eventually manages to set things right.

Long Pants is a delightful comedy that showcases Harry Langdon's talent for physical comedy and slapstick antics. The movie's plot may seem simple, but it is executed with great skill and humor.

The movie's themes of innocence and naivety are still relevant today, and Harry's portrayal of a socially awkward man trying to navigate the complexities of adult life is both endearing and hilarious.

Long Pants is a must-watch movie for fans of silent comedies and Harry Langdon. Its timeless humor and charming story are sure to entertain audiences of all ages.
