I saw Hugo last night. A great movie that turns out to be a love letter to film. I did have a question though. They showed a scene from a Harold Loyd film where he's climbing a building and hanging from a clock. What film is this from and is it available on Super 8?

It was available years ago from Blackhawk Films with a musical accompaniment on the mag track. I have copies of almost all the feature-length Harold Lloyd titles that Blackhawk released as part of a limited partnership with Time-Life whom, at the time, owned the distribution rights. I do see them on Ebay every once in a while. If you catch one - grab it while you can. The Lloyd features are hot commodities with film collectors and are not frequently put up for sale.
