Silent comedy-star Harold Lloyd personally selected his funniest scenes for this hysterical compilation. Our bespectacled hero always seems to go from one set of troubles to another. Contains classic bits from gems such as 'Why Worry?' (1923), 'The Milky Way' (1936), 'Girl Shy' (1924), 'Movie Crazy' (1932), and 'Professor Beware' (1938). You will never forget poor Harold's daring antics on a skyscraper in his best loved film 'Safety Last!' (1923) or his daring climb down the side of a building in 'Feet First' (1930).

This film contains one of the best, funniest race sequences ever, with Lloyd switching from stolen cars to a commandeered tram and finally leaping on to a wagon and horses in a desperate attempt to get to the church on time before the girl he loves married another. And for sheer nail-biting anxiety his death-defying, agile display clawing his way up the outside of a skyscraper - during which he becomes terrifyingly entangled in a window awning and dangles from a rickety decorators' cradle - is astonishing, not least because he had no safety net apparently. A comic masterpiece.
