Harold Lloyd's World of Comedy
3 March 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Although there were some 60 odd years difference between when this was made and when it was screened on terrestrial television under the umbrella title of 'Harold Lloyd's World of Comedy', it still was funny to an 80's generation used to talking pictures as opposed to a silent 1920's generation. Hurrah for Harold Lloyd.
