This disc claims to contain Harold Lloyd and Friends, but it only contains one 20 minute Harold Lloyd short, unrestored, videotape in quality. The rest of the disc contains very poor quality Our Gang shorts and a Mack Sennet comedy with the front titles cut off.
Though they are supposedly Harold's friends, he doesn't do them the honor of appearing in their films. (His only "Our Gang" cameo was in "Dogs of War", NOT on this DVD.
There is a text filmography for Harold Lloyd on the disc, again making this seem like a product that would actually "star" Harold Lloyd, ALAS, he's barely in it.
The Harold Lloyd Trust Foundation is in the process of restoring and eventually releasing his films on dvd. I will wait for them...

The title of this DVD is somewhat misleading if you are looking for Harold Lloyd works on DVD. Of the 5 shorts on the DVD, only one features the man himself, and the others, though of period interest and amusing to our kids, were not up to the same standard. I would recommend getting the videos of the proper HL films or waiting until they come out on DVD.
For info, the shorts on the DVD are as follows:
"Haunted Spooks" with Harold Lloyd and Mildred Davis
Running time 20 mins
"Campus Vamp" - an early Mick Sennett comedy
Running time 20 mins
And then 3 shorts (21 mins) featuring "Our Gang" child actors:
"Our Gang Follies"
"Schools Out"
"Bear Shooting"

The title of this DVD is very misleading. Out of five shorts only one is Harold Lloyd. One is Mack Sennett and three are Our Gang. So if you're a Harold Lloyd fan don't bother with this DVD.

The dvd is labeld as Harold Loyd and freinds but Harold Lloyd is only in the first 20 odd minutes of the film then it shows episodes of the little rascals at which point i switched off.I rated this dvd four stars but that was for the Harold Lloyd section the rest of the dvd was a big disappointment.

Save your money! I wouldn't pay £23 for this dvd. As already said only 1 Lloyd film, the rest are Our Gang shorts which although enjoyable aren't what you want if you've paid expecting Harold Lloyd. BEWARE!!!!!

The first clip does feature Harold Lloyd and is a classic. Shame the rest of the DVD doesn't have him in it! Some great silent comedy tho.
