Inspiration First!

Harold Lloyd's building climbing stunt is one of the most awe-inspiring spectacles I've ever seen in a movie, done with a dogged dexterity and lovable enthusiasm worthy of comparison to Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin at their best. This masterpiece of physical and slapstick comedy made me laugh at inspired gags and gasp at startlingly convincing danger in equal measure.

Description: Harold's a poor country boy who comes to the city to make good -- in hopes of eventually marrying his hometown sweetheart. In the meantime, however, he works as a department store clerk and sends his girl optimistic letters that lead her to believe he is well on his way to success. So, on her mother's advice, she packs her bags and goes to join him. Soon Harold's doing his best to convince her that he really is a boss... A high point: the justifiably famous scene where Lloyd climbs up the 12-story department store building, and hangs over the downtown streets on the hands of a clock. A 1920's "yuppie," Lloyd climbs ... (more)

CRITERION FILMS (781 movies items)

"The comic genius of silent star Harold Lloyd is eternal. Chaplin is the sweet innocent, Keaton the stoic outsider, but Lloyd—the modern guy striving for success—is us. And with its torrent of perfectly executed gags and astonishing stunts, Safety Last! is the perfect introduction to him. Lloyd plays a small-town bumpkin trying to make it in the big city, who finds employment as a lowly department-store clerk. He comes up with a wild publicity stunt to draw attention to the store, resulting i"

Almost Fatal Film Stunts (10 movies items)

" Harold Lloyd was one of the all-time greatest silent comedians. Even though he has since been overshadowed in popularity by the likes of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, during his prime his movies were the most financially successful and most widely seen. One of the main reasons was that Lloyd periodically put his life on the line doing incredibly dangerous stunts. One of the most famous of these was in his 1923 masterpiece Safety Last! The film follows Lloyd who, after a series of unfortun"
