I Do Movies Badly: Harold Lloyd
Tyler Smith becomes the first member of the BP Fleet to guest on I Do Movies Badly since it returned to discuss the films of silent film actor, Harold Lloyd. The recipient of an MFA from UCLA talks about how Harold Lloyd stands apart from–and, in his opinion, stands above–the other “big three” silent film pioneers, Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton and what makes a “Harold Lloyd film” even when he was not the credited director. The value of studying silent film for more than just academic purposes is also discussed before delving into the three recommendations: Girl Shy (1924), Safety Last! (1923), and The Freshman (1925).
