SAFETY LAST! star Harold Lloyd – one of the most enduring legends of cinema’s silent era – shared his expertise and wisdom with the very first class of the AFI Conservatory in 1969, lecturing the young filmmakers in the first-ever installment of the school’s signature seminar series, which bears his name to this day as the vaunted Harold Lloyd Master Seminar. The iconic image of Lloyd hanging from the face of a clock has proven its cultural endurance across nearly a century of homages, references and parodies – and the film itself was included on the American Film Institute’s list of the most thrilling examples of the American art form.
