Comedian/actor Harold Lloyd (1894-1971) made his film debut in 1912 with the Edison Company as an extra. Over the next few years, he had bit parts in Keystone and Universal comedies. In 1916-1917,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. Despite his bookish look, Lloyd's films were characterized by comedy situations involving dangerous stunts in which no doubles were ever used, resulting in Lloyd being nicknamed "The King of Daredevils". 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. In the 1920s, his films often outdrew those of his rivals, Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, at the box office. Lightly creased at corners. Otherwise, fine condition.
