Harold Lloyd (1893-1971) was known as the “Man of the Clock” for his daring stunt in Safety Last (1923). Harold began his film career in 1912 with the Edison Film Company before joining Hal Roach in 1914. After a brief stunt with Mack Sennett, Lloyd rejoined Roach in 1916, and over the next year appeared in over 100 “shorts” as Lonesome Luke. Through the silent era, Lloyd became part of the Chaplin-Keaton-Lloyd comic box office triumvirate. Lloyd is considered alongside Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton as one of the most influential film comedians of the silent film era. Lloyd made nearly 200 comedy films, both silent and “talkies”, between 1914 and 1947. His bespectacled “Glass” character was a resourceful, success-seeking go-getter who matched the zeitgeist of the 1920s-era United States.
