HAROLD LLOYD in GIRL SHY (1924, 82 min. directed by Fred Newmeyer and Sam Taylor)

Harold is a shy tailor's apprentice who has a pronounced stutter and is afraid of girls. He spends his lonely evenings writing a book called “The Secret of Love Making” until he is galvanized into action when he discovers that the girl he loves (Jobyna Ralston) is about to marry a bigamist. What follows is arguably the greatest race-to-the-rescue sequence of the entire silent cinema. The film's ending was the inspiration for Mike Nichol's The Graduate (1967) over forty years later. One of Lloyd's most influential and important films.
