Harold Lloyd

Harold Lloyd in a publicity photo from around the time of the film Speedy, which was released in 1928. Lloyd was born in 1893 and so would have been around 35 years old at the time.

Harold Lloyd was one of the most successful comedians in silent film, and the round glasses and straw hat were his signature. His most memorable film was Safety Last (1923), in which he hung from the face of a building clock 12 stories in the air.
