One of the universal traits about Harold Lloyd that endears him to audiences is the fact that his character stands on the fringes of society outside the mainstream of events. He is a 20th Century Robinson Crusoe and Gulliver combined in one, each film a documentation of his journey through life during his 20's. He is a loner, ostracized from society because he is different, unique, head and shoulders above the rest. To a certain degree, his glasses character is a continuity of his Lonesome Luke character. Their comedy prevents them from self-destructing. The only difference being that he is not poor and does not dress like a tramp.
