The Superiority of Harold Lloyd over Charles Chaplin
7 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Now that Harold Lloyd developed his own identity when Chaplin's two reelers were becoming less frequent, he struck gold in 'A Sammy in Siberia' where he demonstrated the superiority of his physical comedy over Chaplin's. As he didn't have the baggage of pathos in the same way Chaplin did, his comedy was pure slapstick, and was a breath of fresh air as Chaplin was experimenting with four reelers.
