Harold Lloyd

You go on with your bad self Harold…

“Harold’s reaction to his ruined suit – “Speedy” (1928) | Pretty shocking, considering this is 1928 and Harold Lloyd’s always being such a gentleman, but it’s in the film, so I felt I had to include it. This is very atypical of Harold and his films, and I’ve not been able to find out any information on it in any of my many Lloyd books. As far as I know, this is the very first celluloid record of anyone making this particular gesture in a popular movie……somehow it got by the censors.” From F’k Yeah, Harold Lloyd! Blog
