I first saw this film on TCM, then I saw it referenced in the movie Hugo. Harold Lloyd's glasses character is funny and lovable. It is a very funny film, and it embodies the silent film comedy era perfectly. If you are a fan of Buster Ketene and/or Charlie Chaplin, then you with love this film. Harold Lloyd is one of the greats right along with them.

I give safety last 3 1/2 stars----If your reading this than you've never seen the film and/or are wondering if the criterion transfer is any good---- I'm no ocd cinefile but I have not run into a criterion in the last several years that was edgy and this ones no exception. If your looking for funny gags and that sort of atmosphere I would get Modern Times with Charlie chaplain if you don't already have it.------If your rounding out your collection safety last has some things that were never done by anyone else and the film is quite enjoyable. Interestingly I REALLY liked the included short----"Take a chance"----It it quite hilarious and there is another included short that is funny but not as good as "Take a chance".-----Anyway to sum things up----A worthwhile purchase. If you want to have a strong bare bones collection of silent movies you have to have Either "Safety Last " or "The Freshman" by Harold Lloyd --------"The General" by Buster Keaton------And Either "Modern Times"---"City Lights" or Goldrush By Charlie Chaplin---So have fun adding to your collection.
