About the Movie

The comic genius of silent star Harold Lloyd is eternal. Chaplin was the sweet innocent, Keaton the stoic outsider, but Lloyd—the modern guy striving for success—is us. And with its torrent of perfectly executed gags and astonishing stunts, Safety Last! is the perfect introduction to him. Lloyd plays a small-town bumpkin trying to make it in the big city, who finds employment as a lowly department-store clerk. He comes up with a wild publicity stunt to draw attention to the store, resulting in an incredible feat of derring-do on his part that gets him started on the climb to success. Laugh-out-loud funny and jaw-dropping in equal measure, Safety Last! is a movie experience par excellence, anchored by a genuine legend. Music composed by Carl Davis.

Fresh: This Harold Lloyd high-class low comedy has thrills as well as guffaws. – Variety Staff, Variety, May 10, 2018

Fresh: The Glasses character in Safety Last would have blended with the background of the department store where he worked if it had not been for action imposed upon him. But what action! – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Mar 18, 2013

Fresh: The other great silent comics defined their own worlds; Lloyd lives dangerously in ours. – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Mar 18, 2013

Fresh: A [masterpiece]. – David Ehrlich,, Sep 21, 2017

Yeah baby!🏆📽🏆🎗🏆🕴🏆🎼🏆

I thought when I would watch a silent film, I would go crazy trying to figure out what they were saying, but this is great! Move over Charlie Chaplain!
