Great film for being introduced to Lloyd. The gags have a strong basis of a jerk aspiring to be treated as a popular guy. His jig dancing ann kicking before saluting resumes all. The football at the end is a film inside a film.

Everyone knows the basic image of Harold Lloyd dangling from a clock several stories up in Safety Last, but he’s a rarely watched performer. Despite being dubbed the “third genius” of the silent clowns, he frequently disappears behind the towering giants of Keaton and Chaplin.

Harold Lamb is so excited about going to college that he has been working to earn spending money, practicing college yells, and learning a special way of introducing himself that he saw in a movie. When he arrives at Tate University, he soon becomes the target of practical jokes and ridicule. With the help of his one real friend Peggy, he resolves to make every possible effort to become popular.

“Everyone knows the basic image of Harold Lloyd dangling from a clock several stories up in Safety Last, but he’s a rarely watched performer. Despite being dubbed the “third genius” of the silent clowns, he frequently disappears behind the towering giants of Keaton and Chaplin. I say all of this to admit that Lloyd was a blind spot for me until very recently, and still I’ve only seen The Freshman.   It’s hard to pinpoint exactly why Lloyd has fallen into the crevices, but there’s a slow burning resurgence and appreciation of his work. Thank Criterion in part for their three stellar home video releases, but there’s something deeper at play here. Lloyd’s everyman character, known only as the “Glasses Character,” was a blank projection for the anxieties, hopes, dreams, ” read more
