100 Years Of Harold Lloyd's Glass Character



2017 marks 100 years since the first appearance of the Glass Character, Harold Lloyd's most memorable comic persona and the star of his greatest shorts and features. To mark the occasion, we'll be celebrating the centenary on big and small screens around the world.

In donning a humble pair of spectacles, Lloyd added another dimension to an already successful career and secured his place in the pantheon of great silent comedians alongside the likes of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. The development of the Glass Character would see Lloyd make the bold move to shed the Lonesome Luke persona, and his Chaplin-esque trappings, that had secured his popularity from 1915-1917 and create a style all of his own.  See Full Article BY Park Circus
