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.

speachless - the stunts - all his breathe taking - and believe it or not - he only had a few fingers left - timeless classic - deserves to be watched nearly 100 years later!

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)

A classic

“Since I really loved ‘The Kid Brother’, I was really eager to see this other classic starring Harold Lloyd. First of all, I was really surprised to discover that this movie was not included in some major movie lists such as ‘1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die’ or ‘They Shoot Pictures, Don’t They?’ (Roger Ebert did include it in his ‘Great Movies’ list though). Indeed, it is rather weird since this movie does include arguably the most iconic scene displayed in a silent comedy which was obviously when Harold Lloyd was dangling from a clock on a top of a building. This scene was and still is the stuff of legends, even if it was debunked years later by a stuntman. Indeed, there were actually some security measures, for example, they used a fake building front filmed in ” read more

" Date: 3/6/2022 Viewed: HBO Max Re-watch Note: Safety Last is still a great classic almost a century later. There isn't much I can say about this film that hasn't already been said, as it is a well-known classic that many people have seen and discussed. As a result, I'll keep my review brief. The film is full of hilarious moments that are still amusing today. The characters are well-developed, and the acting is excellent. It's also impossible to overlook the famous moment when Harold Lloyd's"

"First viewing - Apr. 4th Silent Sundays I've decided this month to devote time on each Sunday to a different silent film. I figured I'd watch the comedies on the Sundays my daughter is with me, and the other two when I'm on my own. Thus, we begin the month with Safety Last!, a film I've heard good things about. The kiddo didn't pay it much attention, but I had a really good time with it. There are some really funny set pieces and it's solidly entertaining. I generally tend to struggle at times "

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"

"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."
