Description

Harold Lloyd's most-famous comedy features him as a sales clerk in a department store who finds himself hanging off the hands of a collapsing clock on the side of a skyscraper high above the streets of downtown Los Angeles.

Harold's legendary building climb is breathtaking—and hilariously funny—at the same time. What is even more amazing is that the sequence was achieved without any rear-screen projection or special effects.

Lloyd was just as high above ground as one sees him in the film. The fourth—and best—of Lloyd's five famous “thrill” comedies.

Restoration by Janus Films, Criterion and Harold Loyd Entertainment. The film features a new score from Carl Davis.
