Reviews

Silent comedy star Harold Lloyd personally selected his funniest scenes for this hysterical compilation. Our bespectacled hero always seems to go from one set of troubles to another. Contains classic bits from gems such as 'Why Worry?', 'The Milky Way', 'Girl Shy', 'Movie Crazy', and 'Professor Beware'. You will never forget poor Harold's daring antics on a skyscraper in his best loved film 'Safety Last!' or his daring climb down the side of a building in 'Feet First'. Region free.

I purchased this because I enjoyed the Harold Lloyd series on TV years ago. This was just short clips, not full episodes.

greatest hits or great primer....it works as both! 23 Jun 2007
By Richardson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
If you are a fan and own all of Harold Lloyds available DVDs...you may have virtually all the clips on this compilation but I do and maybe in this ADD world its nice to have a "greatest hits" of sorts to throw in the DVD player when you aren't as interested in character and story and just want to be remined of Mr Lloyd's particular genius. For those out there who don't own the staggeringly wonderful newline Box Set....this is a great intro...if you find yourself wanting more after this...that's the place to go..and if this turns out to be a curiosity..you saved big bucks.
The quality of the prints isn't quite up to the big box set standards..but generally they are pretty good, certainly miles ahead of the kinescopes of 50's TV if that helps.

Fine Compilation 23 July 2008
By Fiamonte - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Here we can see the wonderful persona of Harold LLoyd. He was not only a great acrobat, but a very funny performer -both in the air and on the ground. Excellent compilation of his greater moments on film.

Harold Lloyd's Greatest Heights 6 Nov 2009
By Scott T. Rivers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Encouraged by the popularity of Robert Youngson's silent-comedy compilations, Harold Lloyd (who owned all his films) assembled this 1962 anthology. A moderate box-office success, "World of Comedy" includes classic moments from the bespectacled genius: iconic clock hanging in "Safety Last" (1923); the inventive jail escape in "Why Worry?" (1923); and the "get to the church on time" climax in "Girl Shy" (1924). Oddly enough, there are sound sequences from "Feet First" (1930), "Movie Crazy" (1932) and "Professor Beware" (1938) - which suffer in comparison to the golden age of silence. For many years, this 94-minute collection provided film buffs with the only access to Lloyd's work.

Great fun from an actor we don't all know about. 31 Jan 2010
By Nancy Jean - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I discovered Harold Lloyd one night when I turned on Turner Clasic Movies and saw a hilarious 30-minute sequence from the movie "Feet First." I have shown that sequence to my husband, grandchildren (6 & 8) and sons and wives (in their 30s and early 40s), and everybody loves it. So I was happy to be able to buy a sampler of funniest scenes from Harold Lloyd movies, rather than have to watch the entire movies to see the funniest parts. This DVD was perfect. I gave it to my husband for Christmas, and the whole family laughed and laughed. Good therapy.

Good snapshot of Lloyds films. After viewing a film on TV I knew I had to get this and share it with my son in the military to share with his buddies. Good clean fun!
