Harold vient à Los Angeles pour faire fortune, il survit grâce à de petits boulots. Il a menti à sa fiancée sur sa situation financière réelle, et, lorsque celle-ci vient le rejoindre en ville, il est dans l'impossibilité de la recevoir dignement. Contre quelque 500 dollars, un escroc le persuade d'escalader le premier étage d'un immeuble, devant les badauds rassemblés dans la rue, en s'aidant uniquement des aspérités du décor. L'escroc en a promis plus à son public qui a payé pour assister à l'exploit - ou à la chute! - et il oblige Harold à chaque fois de monter plus haut. Au dernier étage, arrivé sur la corniche, Harold est assommé par une girouette et tombe, se raccrochant aux aiguilles de l'horloge. Mais il s'en sortira et fera honneur à sa fiancée

Die Versuche eines jungen Mannes, als Verkäufer in einem Großstadtkaufhaus Karriere zu machen, sind weniger erfolgreich, als seine Berichte an die zu Hause in der Kleinstadt gebliebene Freundin glauben machen.

"The comic genius of silent star Harold Lloyd is eternal. Chaplin is the sweet innocent, Keaton the stoic outsider, but Lloyd-the modern guy striving for success-is us. And with its torrent of perfectly executed gags and astonishing stunts, Safety Last! is the perfect introduction to him. Lloyd plays a small-town bumpkin trying to make it in the big city, who finds employment as a lowly department-store clerk. He comes up with a wild publicity stunt to draw attention to the store, resulting in an incredible feat of derring-do on his part that gets him started on the climb to success. Laugh-out-loud funny and jaw-dropping in equal measure, Safety Last! is a movie experience par excellence, anchored by a genuine legend"--Container
