The silent film comedy is considered a classic and is Harold Lloyd's best-known film. It is particularly famous for an iconic scene that went down in film history: leading actor Lloyd hangs struggling on the hand of a giant clock on the facade of a skyscraper, far above the street. With incorrigible optimism, Lloyd plays the role of the "country boy" who wants to make his fortune in the city. When his girlfriend visits him, he pretends to be a successful businessman. In order for his department store to become famous and for Lloyd to finally make it to the top of his career, he persuades a professional climber to climb up the skyscraper in a demonstration announced beforehand. Unexpected obstacles ensure dangerous scenes.
