The Harold Lloyd Estate on YouTube

Postby Lorenzo Tremarelli » Tue Feb 09, 2021 1:15 pm

Well, since a while the Official Harold Lloyd's YouTube channel has started posting wonderful HD editions of his films, including some rare, welcomed one-reelers with Bebe Daniels and Snub Pollard: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4A3IJ ... 7SeXc2kMMw

If you look on the little bright side of this tragic period, through the digital media principles, no escaping, we're witnessing the speeding-up of a process of rejuvenation in many areas of the silent film's world. Many people could take advantage of the connectivity fueled by these new technologies and as I expected at the start of this pandemic, perhaps the 21st century truly begins now, for good or ill.
In such a case it sounds good to me. Culture for all -- not only for a select few.

We should not forget that this year marks the 50th anniversary of Harold Lloyd's passing, too. It looks like a good way to celebrate.
"The more trouble you get a man into, the more comedy you get out of him" (Harold Lloyd)
