Synopsis:
Born in Nebraska, 1893, Harold Lloyd always had a love for performing, but it was with the legendary producer Hal Roach that he first turned to comedy. Over the years Lloyd developed a number of characters, his most successful and well-known being the "Glasses Character", an all-American boy whose signature was a simple pair of horn-rimmed glasses. While with Hal Roach, Lloyd had a number of regular co-stars, Snub Pollard, Bebe Daniels and his leading lady in many films, Mildred Davis, who he would later marry.
Renowned for his precarious stunts, one of the most iconic images of the era and perhaps of the entire film industry, is Harold Lloyd hanging high above a cityscape from a clock face from his film 'Safety Last'. Here is a collection of nine beautifully restored films made during 1918-1922, featuring Bumping Into Broadway an early success for his evolving "Glasses Character" and Number, Please?, arguably one of Lloyd's best two-reelers. It also includes Grandma's Boy, one of Lloyd's first feature films, it is said, he thought to have been one of his greatest accomplishments.
