This reaction shot makes me laugh every time I see it. Part of it is because Harold Lloyd is just really good at looking annoyed and part of it is because I think we have all been there. You thought you had seen everything and then… THIS happens. THIS being something stupid, weird or just plain deranged. For example, that was my reaction when I discovered that people did, in fact, think that women being tied to the tracks in silent movies was a thing. It wasn’t a thing. Why do people keep thinking it was a thing?

Availability: While there are many editions of the movie to be had, I prefer the one found on Volume 3 of the Harold Lloyd collection. Get the whole three-volume box, if you have the cash. Well worth it and a steal if you factor in the movie-to-dollar ratio.
