Captioned in lower margin. Known as the "Man of the Clock" for his daring stunt in Safety Last (1923), Harold Lloyd (1893-1971) began his film career in 1912 with the Edison Film Company before joining Hal Roach in 1914. After a brief stint with Mack Sennett, Lloyd rejoined Roach in 1916, and over the next year he appeared in over 100 "shorts" as Lonesome Luke. Through the silent era, Lloyd became part of the Chaplin-Keaton-Lloyd comic box office triumvirate. Never using doubles for exceptionally brave stunts, he belied his be-spectacled, timid appearance. Parting from Roach in 1923, Lloyd went on to produce his own films and began building a palatial Hollywood estate, which he willed to California as a film museum. Lloyd, who was awarded a Special Academy Award in 1952, also appeared in such films as The Freshman (1925) and its sequel, The Sins of Harold Diddlebock (1947), his last film after a decade's absence from the screen. Lightly toned around edges. Corners lightly creased. Ink stamp on verso. Otherwise fine condition.
