The 24 Year Old Harold Lloyd
27 October 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Harold Lloyd took his career in his own hands and directed this short film. He wasn't an unfulfilled actor, and he was definitely at the cutting edge of silent comedy, closing in on Chaplin. It was definitely a sensible move to take charge of his profile whilst he was on the way up.
