Donald McCaffrey, a film professor from Iowa, has extensively studied three of Harold Lloyd's great silent films: GRANDMA'S BOY, THE FRESHMAN, and SAFETY LAST. McCaffrey walks the reader through the different portions of each film such as the exposition and climax. He shows how Lloyd develops sight gags and how the latter two films are better than GRANDMA'S BOY. This book also covers Lloyd's early and later career. An appendix of the book includes the author's conversations with Lloyd about Lloyd's career. This book is a 'must-have' for Harold Lloyd fans and readers interested in how silent film comedy works.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
