Safety last! by Fred Newmeyer( Visual )

The comic genius of silent star Harold Lloyd is eternal. Chaplin is 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

"Best known for his irrepressible smile and daredevil stunts, Lloyd combined an appealing down-to-earth persona with an incredibly athletic (and in some cases literally death-defying) physicality. Here is Harold in films, ranging from his early one-reelers with lovely Bebe Daniels; through the silent shorts opposite his future wife, Mildred Davis; and on to some genuinely worthwhile talkies."--Container
