One "Yes" Vote For Harold --- And A Mystery Photo

This word just came via a posting at the Buster Keaton Yahoo group (link HERE). Ultimate Harold Lloyd enthusisast and historian Annette Lloyd has been in conversation with Harold's grandaughter about the possibility of another DVD collection devoted to the great comedian. Believe it or not, there's still lots of good stuff left, even after that incredible set we got in 2005!

Memo To The Harold Lloyd Trust --- Please consider this posting a resounding YES in favor of that plan, and we encourage readers to visit Annette Lloyd's new blog
HERE in order to cast your vote for Harold. They're looking for feedback over there, so don't be shy! Oh, and here's a photographic P.S. for Lloyd experts --- can any of you help us identify this mystery still? The back caption merely says "Harold Lloyd Visits the Set", but what set? And who are those two gals with him?

Hey there, just read through December. Very enjoyable website, I can tell it's going to become a favorite daily visit. I really enjoy all the great photos and your exuberant write-ups. As I was born in '81, its a real gas to read your anecdotes about the heydays of motion pictures. Keep up the great work, I'll be caught up soon! - jdmayer

I can tell you from the hairstyles and clothes that the photo was taken about 1938. The gal on the left looks a little like Shirley Temple, but she would not have been that grown-up at the time. The gal in middle looks vaguely like Ann Rutherford--but she wasn't a blonde. Gal on the right looks familiar, too. Geez, I'm a BIG help, ain't I? Let me ask the husband--he's great at this sort of thing.

Many thanks to my good friend John McElwee for helping me spread the word on the potential of new HL DVDs. Please, though, don't post your opinion on my blog - rather, go directly to the Message Board at http://www.haroldlloyd.com, and reply to my post which is entitled "Want More HL DVDs?" - that is the best way to ensure that the HL Trust gets your note. Thanks again!

And, the second Anonymous is right on the mark - based on the hat HL had in his hand, and his hairline (!), I would have guessed it as around 1938 or even into the early 1940s. Remember, in the early 40s, HL was producing, so he might have been in any number of studios. As I've never seen the photo before, I have no definitive answer! I'll keep thinking about it!

Bestest!
Annette Lloyd
