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.

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)

50 Moments of Cinematic Wonder (50 movies items)

"SAFETY LAST! - HANGING FROM THE CLOCK FACE Harold Lloyd was always considered the third great comedian of the silent era. Perhaps Harold's regular persona, known somewhat blandly as 'the glasses character', was not as inventive as Charlie Chaplin's Tramp or Buster Keaton's Stoneface, and Lloyd had less creative input into the films in which he starred, but as a screen comedian Lloyd threw himself into his films with gusto, performing many of his own stunts and creating a thoroughly likable pers"

Moviewatcher122's 2017 Film Diary: November & Dec. (18 movies items)

"December 2 This is seen as a classic of the silent film era and while I didn't really find it uproariously funny or even one of the best silent comedies, it still has a good number of funny moments and I can see why it's considered a classic even though it's far from a personal favorite."

My movie year 2017 (682 movies items)

"20.11. (Teatteri/35 mm) Korkeanpaikankammoinen oli lähellä sydänkohtausta katsellessaan kiipeilykohtauksia, toinen toistaan vakavampia sattumuksia ja viisareista roikkumista. Esitettävänä olleeseen kopioon oli liitetty melkoisen typerät bo-jo-joing-ääniefektit."

" I've yet to see a Harold Lloyd movie released on Blu-ray over here. Chaplin and Keaton are granted the lion's share of publicity, Lloyd should deserve his moment."
