Harold Lloyd's eternal comedic genius is on full display in the infamous SAFETY LAST!

Encompassing a slew of gut-busting gags and jaw-dropping stunts, including Lloyd's infamous hanging clock tower sequence, SAFETY LAST! is both timeless and modern.

The film stars Lloyd as a small-town guy looking to make a life in the city. While his first job is as an entry level clerk at a department store he still maintains his ambition and decides to perform a wild stunt to get the store more public attention. The resulting scene, one of the most famous scenes in film history, starts Lloyd's little time worker on his way to the top!

It's a fast-paced, incredibly entertaining and genuinely funny ride fueled by the immortal talents of a silver screen legend.
