Random YouTubery: Harold Lloyd in Safety Last! (1923)

Excerpt from Safety Last! (1923), directed by Fred C. Newmeyer and Sam Taylor; written by Jean C. Havez, Harold Lloyd, Hal Roach, Sam Taylor, H.M. Walker, and Tim Whelan

"You've gotta keep on goin'--'til I ditch the cop!"

A note about the music: the music in this clip is not the film's original music. It is a score composed by Carolyn Brunelle, who says on the original YouTube post that she wrote it as a final project for a composition course. So, credit where it's due! When I think Harold Lloyd, I think woodwinds and brass, so this piano score is a departure, but it works.
