Harold Lloyd (1893-1971), the famous "Man Hanging from the Clockface," is, with Keaton and Chaplin, one of three geniuses of silent film comedy. With his trademark glasses, toothy grin, and character that vividly reflected the era of the 20s, Lloyd became the most popular comedian on the screen, producing more movies than Keaton and Chaplin combined. He created the language of "thrill" comedy, influencing not only his contemporaries, but also modern directors and writers as well - his race-to-the-rescue scene in Girl Shy was the model for the final sequence of The Graduate. This book is a vivid, behind-the-scenes account of Lloyd's movie making - the innovative techniques, the development of the elaborate and thrilling comic sequences, and the idea process - from his early days in silent film through his work in talking pictures. With glorious, never-before-published photographs, film stills from the archives of the Harold Lloyd Estate and Film Trust, and a text by film historian Jeffrey Vance and Lloyd's granddaughter Suzanne, the book paints a portrait of a master filmmaker and comedian.

Summary: 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. Codice libro della libreria ABE_book_new_0810916746
