Fine Compilation

"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
Scott T. Rivers | Los Angeles, CA USA | 11/06/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"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 exciting "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."

"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!"
Great fun from an actor we don't all know about.

"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.
