Harold Lloyd Soars to New Heights

The Harold Lloyd Comedy Collection Vols. 1-3
Continued From: "Remembering Harold Lloyd, the Man on the Clock"

I wrote about Harold Lloyd's classic thrill sequence in the 1923 silent film, "Safety Last." After the invention of sound movies, Harold returned to skyscraper climbs in "Feet First." The 1930 incarnation is often described as a remake of the scene, but it's not. The gags are different, especially with our fearless hero arriving inside a postal sack for his surprise adventure. It's the only way to fly.
