SYNOPSIS

‘Salesclerk Harold Lloyd’s “human fly” publicity stunt goes sour when, with the real climber on the lam from a cop, he gets stuck scaling the building himself. The oft-excerpted skyscraper “clock” sequence, shot without trick photography, is a deserved legend, but only the topper to a relentless succession of priceless gags. “To see it today with an audience alternately roaring with laughter and gasping is one of the greatest experiences of cinema.” – David Shipman’ Film Forum
