Trivia (1)

Wilde was a gag man and member of Harold Lloyd's early writing staff (which included John Grey, Tim Whelan and Sam Taylor). Lloyd largely directed his own movies but graciously shared (or gave) directorial credit to others throughout his career, and Wilde frequently received screen credit, despite his nominal directorial input. Sadly, Wilde died (of a stroke) at the advent of sound at a time when Lloyd could have benefited from his input.
