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

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!

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

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.

This Harold Lloyd high-class low comedy has thrills as well as guffaws.

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

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.

Refutes the idea that success and selfishness must be bedfellows, or that to be economically unburdened is to be emotionally uncaring. The idea to continually aspire and ascend propels both the brilliance of "Safety Last!" & Lloyd's enduring appeal.

... the most famous of Harold Lloyd's silent comedies and first of his "thrill pictures," films that he built around slapstick ingenuity in the midst of daredevil stunts. This one has a doozy...

Combining the heart of Chaplin and the physical dexterity and daring of Keaton

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]
