Lloyd`s "Glasses character" was the inspiration for Superman`s identity as Clark Kent. Like that character, Lloyd found that he could hide his identity simply by taking off the glasses.

 

Interred at Forest Lawn, Glendale, California, USA, in the Great Mausoleum, Begonia Corridor.

Twenty years after his triumphs as a freshman on the football field, Harold is a mild-mannered clerk...

I do not believe the public will want spoken comedy. Motion pictures and the spoken arts are two distinct arts.

 

[when asked why he abandoned his Lonesome Luke character and that type of character] Charlie [Charles Chaplin] had the market cornered on that. He had it down to a science.

MandyLovesVintage - I Absolutley LOVEEEE this man! ...Hysterical! & Adorable in the most awkward way. One thing that gets me, is in almost all of his films he always has an object that becomes superimposed into to something else. It`s always very brief, usually once...but just enough to make you laugh...Genius. I Can never get enough of Harold Lloyd! (5 years ago)
history_seeker - Love Harold Lloyd in the films, Safety Last!, Speedy, Hot Water, Dr. Jack, Are Crooks Dishonest?, and an Eastern Westerner. He was a very versitile actor and one of the first ever dare devils with his stunt work. Absolutely amazing! Love the skimmer hat and round horn rim eyeglasses. ;o) (6 years ago)
