Harold Lloyd Movie Poster Book (Paperback)
Research says he was one of the most popular and influential film comedians of the silent film era, best known for his bespectacled glasses character. His films frequently contained "thrill sequences" of extended chase scenes and daredevil physical feats, for which he is best remembered today, including hanging from the hands of a clock high above the street. He was Harold Lloyd, an American actor, comedian, film director, film producer and screenwriter. Between 1914 and 1947, Lloyd made nearly 200 comedy films, both silent and "talkies." The Harold Lloyd Movie Poster Book celebrates Lloyd's long film career by presenting over 50 one sheet posters, lobby cards and other poster art from his silent and sound films. There are also samples of one sheet posters from foreign releases of some of Lloyd's films, and even poster art from Lloyd's compilation films, Harold Lloyd's Word of Comedy and The Funny Side of Life. Harold Lloyd Movie Poster Book is a fitting tribute to one of Hollywood's greatest silent clowns.
