Harold Lloyd Silent Comedies Volume 1

1. HAUNTED SPOOKS (1920-USA). With HAROLD UOYD, MILDRED DAVIS, WALLACE HOWARD. The timeÑtoo late for snowballs and too early for June roses. The place- go down the Mississippi River several miles and turn to the right.” That’s enough story description for you. It’s the artistic madness of Harold Lloyd at work. It was during the filming of “Haunted Spooks” that Harold Lloyd’s hand was injured by an exploding prop bomb, causing the loss of two fingers and paralysis of his right hand, but not slowing down his acrobatic abilities or his romance with Mildred Davis, who not only co-starred in these two-reelers, but became Mrs. Lloyd in 1923! NOTE: This film also appears as cat. #737.
2. HIGH and DIZZY (1920-USA). Harold has just graduated from medical school. However, business is slow and the he finds himself playing solitaire rather than tending to patients. Given this beginning how does Harold end up in the title condition, perilously dangling form a window ledge? Find out in this rollicking comedy gem.
3. HIS ROYAL SLYNESS (1919-USA). With HAROLD LLOYD, MILDRED DAVIS, HARRY POLLARD. A visit to the little Kingdom of Thermosa, adjoining the Isle of Roquefort, and the coast of Razzmatazz. It’s the old look-alike game, as a young book salesman, the spitting image of the young prince, is coerced into leaving America for the inirigue- ridden court of Thermosa (the scene with two Harold Lloyds is remarkable). Lloyd’s black hornrimmed glasses and portrayal of the average clean cut American youth wins the day. NOTE: This film also appears as cat. #737.
4. NUMBER, PLEASE? (1920-USA). Harold is depressed over being dumped by his girl. While drowning his sorrows at an amusement park, he spies her in the company of another and the fun begins. Lloyd literally has a field day as he transforms the park’s rides and attractions into a comic playground. Watch as he haplessly tries to rid himself of a stolen purse.
