Safety Last!

Harold Lloyd’s most-famous comedy features him as a sales clerk in a department store, who finds himself hanging desperately from the hands of a collapsing clock on the side of a skyscraper, high above the streets of downtown Los Angeles.

Harold’s legendary building climb is both breathtaking and hilarious, and is an iconic moment in film history. What is even more amazing is that the sequence was achieved without any rear-screen projection or special effects – he really is just as high above the ground as he seems.
