The comic genius of silent star Harold Lloyd is eternal. Chaplin was the sweet innocent, Keaton the stoic outsider, but Lloyd—the modern guy striving for success—is us. And with its torrent of perfectly executed gags and astonishing stunts, Safety Last! is the perfect introduction to him. Lloyd plays a small-town bumpkin trying to make it in the big city, who finds employment as a lowly department-store clerk. He comes up with a wild publicity stunt to draw attention to the store, resulting in an incredible feat of derring-do on his part that gets him started on the climb to success. Laugh-out-loud funny and jaw-dropping in equal measure, Safety Last! is a movie experience par excellence, anchored by a genuine legend.

What helped me “adjust” to silent movies we're watching these Harold Lloyd films with the commentary turned on. I found the commentary to be very informative and most interesting. If you know someone that can't watch a silent movie, I suggest watching Harold Lloyd films with the commentary turned on. It makes a big difference, especially for the young.
Harold Lloyd, the second funniest man ever. Obviously, Curly from the Three Stooges is still number one.
Politically, Harold Lloyd was conservative, and active in republican politics. He was even a delegate at the 1952 republican convention that nominated Dwight Eisenhower.
We also watched the included (and excellent) feature about the making of Harold Lloyd films, which documents the main building-climbing scene in Safety Last!
Great stuff, and highly recommended.
