Harold Lloyd: Number, Please?

Yes, it's in two parts. But look at the quality! It's like some kind of 1920s Blu-ray! Don't tell me there isn't half an hour somewhere in your Sunday that could do with this.

  1. General Pershing and the other dog were very funny. Who needs CGI when you have a row of distorting mirrors to play with? Harold Lloyd used a multiple image effect 55 years before Queen's "ground breaking" 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.

    Original prints from the master negative were excellent. The workhorse Mitchell cameras were around from 1920. So, in the 1920s films were projected pin sharp onto huge cinema screens and today they are being viewed in lower definition on hand held screens. That is progress!
