Count Your Change is a 1919 American short comedy film featuring Harold Lloyd.


The Boy has just been violently evicted from his boardinghouse for being five weeks behind in his rent. Hungry and penniless, he pilfers a sausage from a hot dog stand--only to have the sausage taken from his hand by a stray dog. The Boy angrily pursues the dog in an elaborate chase until the dog menacingly shows its teeth. Then the chase is reversed and the dog pursues The Boy. The dog eventually chases The Boy into a nearby hotel where he gets into a scuffle with Billy Bullion, a drunken reveler. Shortly thereafter, The Boy prevents a girl, Miss Flighty, from being robbed at gunpoint in her room. The film ends with Miss Flighty and The Boy befriending the dog.
