His horn-rimmed spectacles, straw boater, and trademark toothy grin immortalized in more than 200 movies, Harold Lloyd (1893 - 1971) will forever be an icon of American cinema. Known as "the third genius" of silent film comedy, he made more silent films than Chaplin and Keaton combined, and pioneered the popular "thrill" comedy genre -- epitomized by the infamous image from Safety Last in which he hangs precariously from the hands of a clock high above the streets of Los Angeles.

Published to coincide with the release of Lloyd's major works on video and DVD, this well-researched book is the first to have complete access to the photographs and papers of Lloyd's closely guarded archive, and features 225 duotone photographs, many never before published. Authors Vance and Lloyd (the actor's granddaughter) examine every aspect of the artist's creative output and process.
