Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film Safety Last!

Harold Lloyd's classic comedy about a young man who heads to the big city to make his fortune before getting married, is a textbook example of silent comedy. While not as famous perhaps as Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, Lloyd's death defying stunts have left us with some of cinema's most iconic imagery. One of the marvels of the silent era.
