"Long Pants" (Sus primeros pantalones, 1927), directed by Frank Capra, was the last collaboration of the Italo-american director with the North American comedian Harry Langdon. This comedian played a scatterbrained, awkward boy in the spirits of troubled baby who has just awaken. In this film, his parents give him his first long pants, which symbolize the passing from adolescence to adulthood, and offer him the innocent Priscilla as his first girlfriend. But Langdon falls terribly in love with a seductive vamp linked to drug and mob businesses, and due to this, even attempts to murder his virginal girlfriend. This is a Freudian comedy about a frustrated rite of passage due to sexual immaturity that also presented a keen contrast between the traditional and conservative rural world, and the agitated urban world. Langdon was Dali's and Buñuel's favorite comedian, and also enthused the poet Vicente Huidobro. The French historian Jean Mitry would define him as the "awaken dreamer", the author of a "bitter and destructive poetry".
