Editorial Reviews

Silent comedy-star Harold Lloyd personally selected his funniest scenes for this hysterical compilation. Our bespectacled hero always seems to go from one set of troubles to another. Contains classic bits from such gems as "Why Worry?," The Milky Way, "

If you are a fan and own all of Harold Lloyds available DVDs...you may have virtually all the clips on this compilation but I do and maybe in this ADD world its nice to have a "greatest hits" of sorts to throw in the DVD player when you aren't as interested in character and story and just want to be remined of Mr Lloyd's particular genius. For those out there who don't own the staggeringly wonderful newline Box Set....this is a great intro...if you find yourself wanting more after this...that's the place to go..and if this turns out to be a curiosity..you saved big bucks.
The quality of the prints isn't quite up to the big box set standards..but generally they are pretty good, certainly miles ahead of the kinescopes of 50's TV if that helps.

Here we can see the wonderful persona of Harold LLoyd. He was not only a great acrobat, but a very funny performer -both in the air and on the ground. Excellent compilation of his greater moments on film.

Encouraged by the popularity of Robert Youngson's silent-comedy compilations, Harold Lloyd (who owned all his films) assembled this 1962 anthology. A moderate box-office success, "World of Comedy" includes classic moments from the bespectacled genius: iconic clock hanging in "Safety Last" (1923); the inventive jail escape in "Why Worry?" (1923); and the "get to the church on time" climax in "Girl Shy" (1924). Oddly enough, there are sound sequences from "Feet First" (1930), "Movie Crazy" (1932) and "Professor Beware" (1938) - which suffer in comparison to the golden age of silence. For many years, this 94-minute collection provided film buffs with the only access to Lloyd's work.

I discovered Harold Lloyd one night when I turned on Turner Clasic Movies and saw a hilarious 30-minute sequence from the movie "Feet First." I have shown that sequence to my husband, grandchildren (6 & 8) and sons and wives (in their 30s and early 40s), and everybody loves it. So I was happy to be able to buy a sampler of funniest scenes from Harold Lloyd movies, rather than have to watch the entire movies to see the funniest parts. This DVD was perfect. I gave it to my husband for Christmas, and the whole family laughed and laughed. Good therapy.

Good snapshot of Lloyds films. After viewing a film on TV I knew I had to get this and share it with my son in the military to share with his buddies. Good clean fun!

If you are a fan of Harold Lloyd, or just want to see how comedy got its start from brilliant comedians, this is a keeper. Had me laughing and gasping in my seat. This even entertained a 6 and an 8 year old despite their first nose turn up at "it isn't in COLOR?" But once they got into it, they asked questions about background attire, buildings, autos and the like. (Look what cars used to look like! They delivered MILK? With a horse???) It was not only hilariously funny, but it was very educational and held the kid's interest...for about an hour. Held my interest through the entire DVD for several nights worth of very enjoyable, relaxing comedy entertainment. I'll be watching this over and over for all the subtle nuances. You get more out of each segment every time you watch it. Amazingly, Mr. Lloyd didn't use stunt men, did his own stunts, and didn't die doing it. Bet his Mom didn't know what he did for a living....

Harold Lloyd was a great comedy star, and this CD is entertaining. I thought it would contain one or two of his films in complete form, but was surprised that it is a lot of short segments from various movies, grouped under several headings like "Surprise," "Thrills" and "Action." It is still good and includes scenes from a later movie with sound. Just be aware of what how the presentation is organized.

I remember this show coming on when I was young, repeats of course. It's silent film and awesomely hysterical. I showed a clip to my students when we talked about the invention of the moving picture and silent film. They laughed and laughed ... and 6th graders are a tough crowd. I recommend this to everyone of every age.
