Next to Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd was one of the silent era’s most accomplished comedic talents. In “Safety Last!,” the actor gets in over his head as a young man who’s forced to climb a tall building as part of a publicity stunt. It features a very famous scene in which Lloyd hangs from the hands of a huge clock.
