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

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.

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!

The other great silent comics defined their own worlds; Lloyd lives dangerously in ours.
