Harold Lloyd was one of the great silent comedians of the 20th Century, and even though Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton are more well known and revered among today's film scholars, Harold Lloyd was actually the most popular star during his time and the biggest box office attraction. You can see why in his films, where he plays the nerdy, socially awkward stumbler, but that awkward relatability helps his persona to hold up sometimes even better than the other two. And he was just as funny- watch The Freshman, one of his best movies, to see why; it's just as hilarious as ever. Lloyd had influences on everyone from Woody Allen to the Marx Brothers.
