“Safety Last!” (1923)
Directed by Fred Newmeyer, Sam Taylor
Attempting to impress the girl he hopes to marry, a department store clerk ends up in the middle of a wild publicity stunt to scale the side of a tall building. Comic gags and edge-of-your-seat thrills—including the unforgettable image of Harold Lloyd dangling precariously from a clock—follow in rapid succession as Lloyd climbs his way to success in this iconic film.
