Harold Clayton Lloyd Sr. Lloyd is considered alongside Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton as one of the most influential film comedians of the silent film era.
Lloyd made nearly comedy films, both silent and " talkies ", between and His bespectacled "Glasses" character   was a resourceful, success-seeking go-getter who matched the zeitgeist of the s-era United States.
His films frequently contained "thrill sequences" of extended chase scenes and daredevil physical feats. Lloyd hanging from the hands of a clock high above the street in reality a trick shot in Safety Last!
An accident with a bomb mistaken as a prop resulted in the loss of the thumb and index finger of his right hand  the injury was disguised on future films with the use of a special prosthetic glove, and was almost undetectable on the screen.
His paternal great-grandparents were Welsh. Lloyd had acted in theater since a child, but in California he began acting in one-reel film comedies around Lloyd worked with Thomas Edison 's motion picture company, and his first role was a small part as a Yaqui Indian in the production of The Old Monk's Tale.
He was also hired by Universal Studios as an extra and soon became friends with aspiring filmmaker Hal Roach. Roach and Lloyd created "Lonesome Luke", similar to and playing off the success of Charlie Chaplin films.
Lloyd hired Bebe Daniels as a supporting actress in ; the two of them were involved romantically and were known as "The Boy" and "The Girl".
In , she left Lloyd to pursue her dramatic aspirations. Later that year, Lloyd replaced Daniels with Mildred Davis , whom he would later marry.
Lloyd was tipped off by Hal Roach to watch Davis in a movie. Reportedly, the more Lloyd watched Davis the more he liked her. Lloyd's first reaction in seeing her was that "she looked like a big French doll".
By , Lloyd and Roach had begun to develop his character beyond an imitation of his contemporaries. Harold Lloyd would move away from tragicomic personas, and portray an everyman with unwavering confidence and optimism.
The persona Lloyd referred to as his "Glass" character  often named "Harold" in the silent films was a much more mature comedy character with greater potential for sympathy and emotional depth, and was easy for audiences of the time to identify with.
The "Glass" character is said to have been created after Roach suggested that Harold was too handsome to do comedy without some sort of disguise.
To create his new character Lloyd donned a pair of lensless horn-rimmed glasses but wore normal clothing;  previously, he had worn a fake mustache and ill-fitting clothes as the Chaplinesque "Lonesome Luke".
He was a kid that you would meet next door, across the street, but at the same time I could still do all the crazy things that we did before, but you believed them.
They were natural and the romance could be believable. Within the first few years of the character's debut, he had portrayed social ranks ranging from a starving vagrant in From Hand to Mouth to a wealthy socialite in Captain Kidd's Kids.
On Sunday, August 24, , while posing for some promotional still photographs in the Los Angeles Witzel Photography Studio, he picked up what he thought was a prop bomb and lit it with a cigarette.
The blast was severe enough that the cameraman and prop director nearby were also seriously injured. Lloyd was in the act of lighting a cigarette from the fuse of the bomb when it exploded, also badly burning his face and chest and injuring his eye.
Despite the proximity of the blast to his face, he retained his sight. As he recalled in , "I thought I would surely be so disabled that I would never be able to work again.
I didn't suppose that I would have one five-hundredth of what I have now. Still I thought, 'Life is worth while. Just to be alive.
Beginning in , Roach and Lloyd moved from shorts to feature-length comedies. These included the acclaimed Grandma's Boy , which along with Chaplin's The Kid pioneered the combination of complex character development and film comedy, the highly popular Safety Last!
Although Lloyd performed many athletic stunts in his films, Harvey Parry was his stunt double for the more dangerous sequences.
Lloyd and Roach parted ways in , and Lloyd became the independent producer of his own films. These included his most accomplished mature features Girl Shy , The Freshman his highest-grossing silent feature , The Kid Brother , and Speedy , his final silent film.
Welcome Danger was originally a silent film but Lloyd decided late in the production to remake it with dialogue. All of these films were enormously successful and profitable, and Lloyd would eventually become the highest paid film performer of the s.
From this success he became one of the wealthiest and most influential figures in early Hollywood. Released a few weeks before the start of the Great Depression , Welcome Danger was a huge financial success, with audiences eager to hear Lloyd's voice on film.
Lloyd's rate of film releases, which had been one or two a year in the s, slowed to about one every two years until The films released during this period were: Feet First , with a similar scenario to Safety Last which found him clinging to a skyscraper at the climax; Movie Crazy with Constance Cummings ; The Cat's-Paw , which was a dark political comedy and a big departure for Lloyd; and The Milky Way , which was Lloyd's only attempt at the fashionable genre of the screwball comedy film.
To this point the films had been produced by Lloyd's company. However, his go-getting screen character was out of touch with Great Depression movie audiences of the s.
As the length of time between his film releases increased, his popularity declined, as did the fortunes of his production company. His final film of the decade, Professor Beware , was made by the Paramount staff, with Lloyd functioning only as actor and partial financier.
The location is now the site of the Los Angeles California Temple. Lloyd produced a few comedies for RKO Radio Pictures in the early s but otherwise retired from the screen until He returned for an additional starring appearance in The Sin of Harold Diddlebock , an ill-fated homage to Lloyd's career, directed by Preston Sturges and financed by Howard Hughes.
This film had the inspired idea of following Harold's Jazz Age , optimistic character from The Freshman into the Great Depression years.
Lloyd and Sturges had different conceptions of the material and fought frequently during the shoot; Lloyd was particularly concerned that while Sturges had spent three to four months on the script of the first third of the film, "the last two-thirds of it he wrote in a week or less".
The finished film was released briefly in , then shelved by producer Hughes. The show presented half-hour radio adaptations of recently successful film comedies, beginning with Palm Beach Story with Claudette Colbert and Robert Young.
Robinson , Jane Wyman , and Alan Young. But the show's half-hour format—which meant the material might have been truncated too severely—and Lloyd's sounding somewhat ill at ease on the air for much of the season though he spent weeks training himself to speak on radio prior to the show's premiere, and seemed more relaxed toward the end of the series run may have worked against it.
Many years later, acetate discs of 29 of the shows were discovered in Lloyd's home, and they now circulate among old-time radio collectors.
Lloyd remained involved in a number of other interests, including civic and charity work. Inspired by having overcome his own serious injuries and burns, he was very active as a Freemason and Shriner with the Shriners Hospital for Crippled Children.
He appeared as himself on several television shows during his retirement, first on Ed Sullivan 's variety show Toast of the Town June 5, , and again on July 6, During both appearances, Lloyd's hand injury can clearly be seen.
Then, the movie to be produced by Jerry Wald for 20th Century-Fox , will limit the screenplay to Lloyd's professional career.
Neither project materialized. Lloyd studied colors and microscopy , and was very involved with photography , including 3D photography and color film experiments.
He became known for his nude photographs of models, such as Bettie Page and stripper Dixie Evans , for a number of men's magazines.
He also took photos of Marilyn Monroe lounging at his pool in a bathing suit, which were published after her death.
In , his granddaughter Suzanne produced a book of selections from his photographs, Harold Lloyd's Hollywood Nudes in 3D! Lloyd also provided encouragement and support for a number of younger actors, such as Debbie Reynolds , Robert Wagner , and particularly Jack Lemmon , whom Harold declared as his own choice to play him in a movie of his life and work.
Lloyd kept copyright control of most of his films and re-released them infrequently after his retirement. Lloyd did not grant cinematic re-releases because most theaters could not accommodate an organist to play music for his films, and Lloyd did not wish his work to be accompanied by a pianist: "I just don't like pictures played with pianos.
We never intended them to be played with pianos. That's a high price, but if I don't get it, I'm not going to show it.
They've come close to it, but they haven't come all the way up". As a consequence, his reputation and public recognition suffered in comparison with Chaplin and Keaton, whose work has generally been more widely distributed.
Lloyd's film character was so intimately associated with the s era that attempts at revivals in s and s were poorly received, when audiences viewed the s and silent film in particular as old-fashioned.
The renewed interest in Lloyd helped restore his status among film historians. Throughout his later years he screened his films for audiences at special charity and educational events, to great acclaim, and found a particularly receptive audience among college audiences: "Their whole response was tremendous because they didn't miss a gag; anything that was even a little subtle, they got it right away.
Following his death, and after extensive negotiations, most of his feature films were leased to Time-Life Films in As Tom Dardis confirms: "Time-Life prepared horrendously edited musical-sound-track versions of the silent films, which are intended to be shown on TV at sound speed [24 frames per second], and which represent everything that Harold feared would happen to his best films".
These were often near-complete versions of the early two-reelers, but also included extended sequences from features such as Safety Last!
Time-Life released several of the feature films more or less intact, also using some of Scharf's scores which had been commissioned by Lloyd.
The Time-Life clips series included a narrator rather than intertitles. Various narrators were used internationally: the English-language series was narrated by Henry Corden.
The Brownlow and Gill documentary was shown as part of the PBS series American Masters, and created a renewed interest in Lloyd's work in the United States, but the films were largely unavailable.
The new cable television and home video versions of Lloyd's great silent features and many shorts were remastered with new orchestral scores by Robert Israel.
A DVD collection of these restored or remastered versions of his feature films and important short subjects was released by New Line Cinema in partnership with the Harold Lloyd Trust in , along with theatrical screenings in the US, Canada, and Europe.
Gale explains: "It was just something the set dressers or props people found, it was interesting so we put it in the movie. Is Doc a football fan or a Broncos fan?
We know he's a baseball fan, so he could be a football fan. Or maybe he acquired it on a trip to Denver. We know he's not from Denver, but maybe his mother was his father, remember, was German and originally Von Braun.
Clearly, we can invent many backstories out of a single prop, so in honor of BTTF day, I encourage readers to submit their own reasons why Doc would have this clock!
