Learning about Lloyd

I received another DVD of Harold Lloyd movies the other day, and discovered how much I still don't know. "The Kid Brother" is acknowledged as one of Lloyd's best films -- but I didn't know that when I sat down to watch it. All I knew was that it was an utterly charming comedy with some absolutely brilliant camerawork and some of the best sight gags I've seen.

It was only after I had enjoyed the movie that I found out how highly it was esteemed. I recommended it to a friend, and he happened to research it online -- and there that's when we found the critical reviews that all basically agreed on the quality of the film (which was also in line with my viewing experience).

Who knows what I'll learn next?
