Harold Lloyd was one of the great comic stars of the cinema, a genius on a par with Chaplin and Keaton. Born in Burchard, Nebraska, on April 20, 1893 Lloyd was acting at an early age with theatrical repertory companies. He made his film debut as an extra in a 1913 one-reel film for the Edison Film Company. He became friends with another extra, Hal Roach, and when Roach formed his own film company, he invited Lloyd to join him.

Lloyd's initial comic characterization was a tramp character called Willie Work. After a series of partings over money and subsequent reconciliations, Roach and Lloyd created a new character, called Lonesome Luke, which became popular, despite Lloyd's dislike of imitating Charlie Chaplin, which the film distributor, Path?demanded.

Then Lloyd found the idea that was to become his trademark, and change him from a good comedian to a major star: the glasses. Lloyd persuaded Roach and his distributor to abandon Lonesome Luke and in 1917 Lloyd shed grotesque comedy clothes and characterizations for a pair of horn-rimmed glasses. In doing so, Lloyd created an American archetype, an optimistic and determined go-getter sporting spectacles and a toothy smile.

Lloyd retained the Glass Character (as Lloyd called his comic persona) throughout the rest of his motion picture career, which spanned 34 years and over 200 comedies. Among his most famous films are Grandma's Boy (1922), Safety Last! (1923), The Freshman (1925), The Kid Brother (1927), Speedy (1928), and Movie Crazy (1932), all included here amongst many other gems in this most comprehensive of collections.

Bargain! I used to roll around the floor laughing at this ! HO HO HOT!!!!
Damn, just went for this and its back up to full price! Looks to be expired now.
I just saw this, have been after this for a while.

Damn, can't believe I missed out.

Any chance they will put the offer back on again?
Have been watching the price for months now and I said get it now, I think they just had too much demand for the product, they will no doubt bring the price back down again.
Sorry to bump an old post.

Did anyone actually manage to get this at £17.99...?

I placed my order straight away then posted the deal here.

Although I got my order in for £17.99 the price then went up to £49.99 and then "Out Of Stock".

The item was then put "On Order" from the supplier on my account.
It's now back in stock at full price and HMV are refusing to honour the original price that is still on my online account.

In Stock at £17.99 again.

Mine arrived today.
