Doug Fairbanks, Harold Lloyd and Tarzan -- April 5, 2022

Richmond Palladium and Sun-Telegram, 01-April-1922

100 years ago this month, Harold Lloyd was a big star. "Just Dropped In" was a revival of a 1919 two-reeler. The Mollycoddle was a 1920 feature starring Douglas Fairbanks. The Adventures of Tarzan was a serial which included Elmo Lincoln's last appearance as Tarzan.

Some people consider the four reel "A Sailor Made Man" to be Harold Lloyd's last short, while others call it his first feature. In any event it was a great success.

Harold was stricken with influenza, which could still be serious a few years after the epidemic.
