One of the great things about the short Harold Lloyd comedies is that he makes you want to get up out of your chair and jump into the action. You feel his emotions. You share his pain. He is an extension of the audience, and you immediately connect with his humanity. It's to his advantage that he is a universal character because he transcends time and culture. He provides light relief, whether he is Lonesome Luke or the glasses character. His portrayals are personal to each member of the audience that watches him, and there is something about the delivery of his performance that speaks into your own situation. He is most definitely an endearing character.
