Description
The comic genius of silent star Harold Lloyd is eternal. Chaplin was the sweet innocent, Keaton the stoic outsider, but Lloyd-the modern guy striving for success-is us. And with its torrent of perfectly executed gags and astonishing stunts, Safety Last! is the perfect introduction to him. Lloyd plays a small-town bumpkin trying to make it in the big city, who finds employment as a lowly department-store clerk. He comes up with a wild publicity stunt to draw attention to the store, resulting in an incredible feat of derring-do on his part that gets him started on the climb to success. Laugh-out-loud funny and jaw-dropping in equal measure, Safety Last! is a movie experience par excellence, anchored by a genuine legend.

        Watch the movie first, then the producer narrative. Made me laugh.

          I enjoy collecting CLASSICS movies and I consider Safety First a superb example of the talents of Harold Lloyd.

            Very funny movie, we saw this movie on TCM recently and laughed so hard at Harold Lloyd throughout the movie. My wife doesn't care much for silent films, but she'll sometimes watch them with me, she was laughing so hard when Harold climbed the building. It's been years since I saw her laughing like that.
            Laughter is good medicine:)
            They don't make them like this anymore...OSHA won't let them:)
