Harold Lloyd’s most popular comedy is arguably his funniest film. It was also his most commercially successful silent comedy feature. Harold plays college freshman Harold Lamb who longs to be the Big Man on Campus. His metamorphous from college zero to college hero in the climactic football game is one of the high points of silent film comedy.
