Did You Know?
[in 1970] My humor was never cruel or cynical. I just took life and poked fun at it. We made it so it could be understood the world over, without language barriers. We seem to have conquered the time barrier, too.
Unlike many other stars of the silent era Lloyd was known for his financial acumen. Despite his many expensive hobbies and the essential death of his film career after the advent of 'talkies' in the late 1920s he would still leave an inheritance of $12 million dollars upon his death in 1971.
In the prime of his career, Lloyd's most famous role was the "Glasses" character, a young eager all-American man who was out to succeed in life and absolutely no physical obstacle would stand in his way as he risked life and limb to achieve his goals.
