Lloyd made out this check to his son Harold Lloyd, Jr. for $75 in 1952.
Check signed: "Harold Lloyd", 6¼x2½ with perforated left edge. 1952 December 24. Un-numbered check for $75, made out to his son Harold Lloyd, Jr. and drawn from Harold Lloyd, Sr.'s account at the Hollywood office of California Bank in Hollywood, California. Harold Lloyd Jr. was 21 years old at the time. Lloyd (1893-1971, born in Beverly Hills, California) made his film debut in 1912 with the Edison company as an extra. In the next few years, he had bit parts in Keystone and Universal comedies. Between 1916 and 1917,Lloyd appeared in about 100 shorts for Hal Roach as Lonesome Luke, a character they created. In 1917, Roach experimented with a new character for Lloyd: an average young man wearing a pair of oversized black horn-rimmed glasses that were to become Lloyd's trademark for the rest of his brilliant comedy career. The thrill-comedy situations involving dangerous stunts were characteristic of his films. Lloyd dangling from atop a skyscraper with nothing to hold on to but the hand of a clock (Safety Last, 1923) is one of the most famous scenes in the history of film comedy. No doubles were ever used. In the 1920s, his films often outdrew at the box office those of his rivals, Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. Normal bank stamps and cancellation holes, none of which touch signature. Light dent on right edge. Folded once and unfolded. Otherwise, fine condition.
