FRI NIGHT VID: Safety Last!

We all have that one friend who can just keep hanging on and will manage not to fall off no matter what you throw at them. Tonight's video is from 1923 and is an excerpt from stuntman Harold Lloyd's film Safety Last! Ok, it's not strictly 'climbing,' but we were impressed by the number of recognisable moves he managed to pull-off...

Even more astounding is this bit of trivia we discovered online:

'Lloyd performed some of his climbing stunts despite losing a thumb and forefinger in an accident while making a film four years earlier.'

Thanks to UKC user Tommy Moore for bringing this to our attention...
