Making A Spectacle Of Himself

Harold Lloyd in his (what would have been funny) round glasses has made many millions of people laugh and if we’re talking about being part of the persona, then for a modern DVD to be released using the word “Spectacles” in the title only endorses that view.

The image here is from a current release with ten hours of comedy – just $13 odd at Amazon.

His spectacles which were such a part of his look back in the 1910’s & 1920’s would of course be quite fashionable again now – but unless you were really going for the statement look, I expect that the hair would be different.

You’ll have to buy the DVD to watch the film to see if his spectacles actually feature in the comedy.  I can’t remember it’s been so long since I watched him.
