Safety Last! (1923)

Director: Fred C. Newmeyer
Starring: Harold Lloyd


Glasses (Lloyd), the store clerk, talks his manager into offering $1000 for a publicity stunt, in which a man called human fly would climb the face of the 12-storey store building, thus bringing customers nearby.
At the last minute, however, it turns out that the human fly is wanted by the law, and thus cannot do the stunt. Glasses has no choice but to roll up his sleeves and start climbing…

Persuasive enough to give audiences acrophobia when they aren’t laughing at Harold Lloyd’s antics, Safety Last! is a marvel of visual effects and slapstick comedy.
