Harold Lloyd's World of Comedy is a compilation film of the famed silent-comedy star's funniest screen scenes, lovingly assembled by Harold Lloyd himself. The film spotlights choice moments from such Lloyd silent features as Safety Last (1923), Why Worry (1923), Hot Water (1924), Girl Shy (1924) and The Kid Brother (1924). Also included are several sequences from Lloyd's talking pictures: The train chase from Professor Beware (1938), the magician's coat routine from Movie Crazy (1932), and the climb down the side of a building from Feet First (1930). Harold Lloyd's World of Comedy was actually finished two years before its release, but Lloyd, ever the perfectionist, extensively previewed the film to gauge audience reaction. World of Comedy was reasonably successful, so Lloyd followed up with another compilation, Harold Lloyd's Funny Side of Life (1963), which consisted mostly of footage from the comedian's most popular silent feature, The Freshman (1925).

I'm going to purchase this even though I own everything of Harold Lloyd's that's available.I want this because it has alittle over two minutes of "Professor Beware"which isn't in dvd format as of yet.
I think this one is mostly for people who are undecided if they like H.L. or not,and is a good way to get to know him and his style without having to spend alot of money.If your looking for the best of Harold Lloyd's work,then you should purchase the "Newline" box set.
