Comedic Poetry
16 February 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This was the year that Harold Lloyd was earning $400 per week having stepped up from $300 per week. Chaplin was earning $10,000 per week at this stage, Roscoe Arbuckle was on $3,000 per week, and Buster Keaton was on $1,000 per week. I guess as the title of this short film suggests, Lloyd wanted $5,000 per week.
