Looking through the forum I noticed photos from two different threads that appear to be the same car.
Sure looks the same.
Even the terrain looks the same.
Movie stills? What period comedian could have fallen through that hole in the roof?
Thanks Mark. I needed that.
Harold Lloyd. He swapped the car with another driver to escape the bad guys. Unfortunately, things went awry
Yes, you will see that I posted both vehicles. Answer No. 74 was a joke but I was curious about the year of the car so I started a new thread to inquire. Here's the video:
Girl Shy - Harold Lloyd
1:03:46 - 1:05:00
Most people don't know that Harold lost the thumb and index finger of his right hand and wore a prostatic glove and was still able to do all those stunts. KGB
I see that car came with the optional sunroof!
Maybe an urban/Hollywood myth? But was it Samuel Goldwyn or Louis B Meyer that began business as a haberdasher, and after Harold Lloyd's accident (with a prop explosive) personally made the prosthetic glove so Harold could perform on camera and not show the damaged hand. Absolutely amazing that he could continue to do the incredible stunts, and climbing, that he actually did. Harold Lloyd and Buster Keaton were both incredible athletes, as well as entertaining performers.
And Duane only provides terrible thread drift: I was able to see All Star Wrestling once in awhile when I was a kid here in Minnesota.
Think Verne Gagne and Wally Karbo plus many others. That tradition of incredible athletes and entertaining performers still continues to this day. Quietly wrestling up a storm and they're young. I announced such a thing this last Saturday. They liked my bit.
Sorry for this out-there drift. :-)
The trail blazers: Harold Lloyd and Buster Keaton are the best! One take and let's get it right or else somebody gets hurt.
These guys are the best.
