(EN) The narrative of Safety Last! includes all of the standard ingredients for a Harold Lloyd feature: the go-getter trying to make good, his struggle to do so, his attempt to put on a brave face for his loved ones, and is finding himself in a challenging situation that he must somehow overcome. And while this feature is known chiefly for its daredevil sequence, there is a great deal of clever visual comedy that leads up to it, including Harold attempting to board an overcrowded streetcar to avoid being late for work, or trying to maintain a large crowd of women in the store who are descending upon the bargain materials where he is in charge.
Along with being the quintessential Harold Lloyd comedy, Safety Last! is also one of the most significant American silent films. It not only defines the work of a top comedian and filmmaker, it also indicates how a movie made over 90 years ago can still evoke the same audience reaction as it had when initially released. Senses of Cinema

(NL) Samen met de stuiterende kinderwagen in 'Pantserkruiser Potemkin' is de man die in 'Safety Last!' aan de grote wijzer van een torenklok hangt te bengelen, wellicht het meest iconische beeld van de stille cinema. Terwijl beneden, in de drukke stadsstraten, de massa aanzwelt, heeft de man de geestelijke helderheid om nog een snelle blik in de camera te werpen, alsof hij wil zeggen: 'Hé, kijk eens wat ik allemaal durf! Wat ik allemaal wil doen om u te entertainen!' Die man, die net als Buster Keaton op gevaar van lijf en leden bijna al zijn stunts zelf deed, heet Harold Lloyd. 'Het derde genie van de stille film, naast Keaton en Chaplin', zo wordt hij in een biografie omschreven. 'Iemand die de humane inborst van Chaplin combineert met de acrobatie van Keaton.' 'Safety Last!' is wellicht zijn bekendste film. Enola magazine

(FR) La vision de ce film célèbre d’Harold Lloyd nous donne des frissons encore aujourd’hui. Dans cette escalade d’immeuble, chaque situation semble pire que la précédente et l’on reste abasourdi par les prouesses réalisées. L’ensemble est surtout très amusant.
Safety Last! est le dernier film avec Mildred Davis qui abandonna sa carrière pour devenir Madame Lloyd. A noter que contrairement à Chaplin et Keaton, Harold Lloyd eut une vie sentimentale heureuse et ne divorça pas.
