Harold Lloyd Spotlight

Monday, April 20 is the anniversary of the birth of Harold Lloyd. Since TCM are airing his movies all morning and afternoon, I figured I'd post about it now instead of on his actual birthday, by which time you'll have missed several of the movies.

I mentioned last August that I think Lloyd doesn't get the recognition he deserves, so it's nice to see him get a day on TCM. They've decided to show a bunch of his lesser-known movies, so Safety Last! and The Freshman, which I mentioned back in August, aren't part of this tribute. (Whether that's a good thing or not is left as an exercise to the reader.) However, Lloyd's co-star from The Freshman, Jobyna Ralston, who is scene in the photo at left with Harold Lloyd, makes an appearance in Girl Shy, at 7:15 AM ET Monday.

It's always nice to see his movies on television!
