    Description

    Harold Lloyd (Paramount, 1920s). Stock One Sheet (27" X 41").
    In 1917, Harold Lloyd created his most unforgettable character, one that was to remain a signature throughout his career. With round glasses, a straw hat, and an unkempt suit, this new persona was both the fool and the fox, bumbling imperfection that could cunningly outsmart the bad guys. Labeled as "The King of Daredevil Comedy," Lloyd is best remembered by many fans as the young man dangling desperately from a clock tower in the 1923 classic Safety Last. Athletic and spontaneous, Lloyd performed his comedic daredevil stunts with grace and ease. In 1924, Lloyd formed his own independent film production company, the Harold Lloyd Film Corporation, with his films distributed by Pathe and later Paramount and 20th Century Fox. This stock poster dates from the time of his relationship with Paramount, and is filled with a handsome portrait of the much admired star. Minimal signs of handling have been addressed with restoration: a small sliver of missing paper in the bottom right corner, a hole in the left white background, scattered pinholes in the top background and in the corners, and fold wear. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
