Lost Lloyd Shorts

Postby Joe Migliore » Wed Sep 07, 2011 5:56 am

By my count, there are nearly thirty titles missing from Harold Lloyd's post-Luke canon. Chances are, however, that my information is antiquated, and it is more than likely that some of these films have been located. If there are any titles below no longer presumed lost, and you are so inclined, please post a reply. (I can't be the only one who's wondered about their survival.) Thanks, guys.

Well, I have a print of FOLLOW THE CROWD, it was going to be run at Slapsticon 2011 this year.

I think BEAT IT exists as well, and though I don;t recall seeing any of the others on the list right off the bat, I'd wager a number of them do survive in 9.5 prints or other wise. Lloyd one-reelers seem to keep turning up in one form or another all of the time.

I am absolutely certain that the following Lloyd one-reelers are extant:

Before Breakfast
Hear ‘Em Rave
Just Dropped In
Let’s Go
Nothing But Trouble
Swat The Crook

And Hear 'Em Rave is fairly common.

As Richard says a number of the Lloyds are floating around on 9.5mm. Here's some other titles I've seen from the list:

COUNT THE VOTES
THE DUTIFUL DUB
FOLLOW THE CROWD
OFF THE TROLLEY
THE RAJAH
SWAT THE CROOK

Thank you, gentlemen, for weighing in on this. Well, a baker's dozen are no longer missing, and likely others will come to light. As all of these films run a single reel in duration, I'm guessing that favors their odds of turning up somewhere in a small gauge.

I'm glad to see you will be screening it at this year's Slapsticon. I have no choice but to attend.

Happy to hear it! We've just posted a nice image of a poster from FOLLOW THE CROWD on the Media page of the Slapsticon website:
