... a briskly paced thrill comedy with memorable gag after memorable gag, and a surprising dark streak.

The climb has both comic and dramatic weight because it is both a thrilling exercise in physical humor and a thematically rich evocation of the pressures men feel to succeed, lest they be viewed as less than a man

Of the great silent film comedians, Harold Lloyd stood apart from Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton by virtue of his everyman approach to physical comedy. He had to work at it and he let his difficulty show, but not entirely.

As a personality, Lloyd is a combination of silly and sweet, but his true star power comes from his daring athleticism.

Harold Lloyd manages to make the characters sympathetic enough to carry the audience's concern on his journey of crazy stunts and mishaps. One of the best of this era.

The clock-hanging climax that caps this generally charming tale of a country boy out to make his fortune in the big city is a superb example of his ability to mix suspense and slapstick.

I laughed more at some of the scenes with Harold in the store than I did at the climb itself.

The Glasses character in Safety Last would have blended with the background of the department store where he worked if it had not been for action imposed upon him. But what action!

On video, Safety Last! is a certified treat, but in packed movie houses, with audiences invariably gasping and giggling on every cue, it's a near-religious experience. [Criterion Blu-ray]

No words are necessary to illustrate Lloyd's genius as he gets into deeper and deeper trouble.
