Parts of three different Harold Lloyd movies. The first two are shot in New York, and the third in Los Angeles.

In the trip to Yankee stadium, that looks like Babe Ruth in the cab. Is it?

Yep, that's him. He was in several movies.

Great stunt driving, especially with the horses, but they crashed pretty good at the end of that segment. Can't imagine that ended well for the driver or the horses!

Looked just like NYC streets too...filthy, litter everywhere and LA wasn't much better. In those days there were no "lanes" you drove where ever it was safe to drive (but not on the sidewalks) which is what precisely makes those old movies so funny and thrilling. Only Harold Lloyd, Buster Keyton and Laurel and Hardy took it to extremes.

I remember when I was in NYC back in 72, we first heard then saw a fire engine coming down the street, all the traffic cleared a path for him, but he was followed by 5 city buses driving just as fast as the fire engine, who all turned off on different streets as the fire engine cleared the way. Which is just typical driving for NYC.
