Periodically, new and rather rare images of HL will be added to this page.
Feel free to add one that you find interesting and shareable!
HL and his prized Great Dane, Prince, circa 1927.
I love this shot of him so much that I built the cover of my latest book around it. It was taken around 1953.
HL at his desk in the library in Greenacres. That desk still sits in this room … I sat at it … the “books” you see in front of the desk are not books: they are engraved wood. Exquisite.
From Life magazine, 1953: HL in his “Chaos Room” in Greenacres. This was the room where he let loose on his favorite hobby, stereo photography.
A splendid portrait of HL done for Philippe Halsman’s “Jump Book.”
A wonderful publicity shot, probably for Bashful (1917).
From Kicking the Germ Out of Germany (1918) … note the Rolin Film Company prop box behind HL, as well as the Kaiser’s image on the punching bag.
Not for the faint of heart: HL sends himself a most curious message after resigning to the paint on his new suit, in Speedy (1928). Co-star Ann Christy surveys the damage to Speedy’s back end.
This is what advertising looked like – at least for HL – in 1915. This is an EXTREMELY early Lonesome Luke. This film even predates the Phunphilm brand, which headlined many of the early Luke shorts.
An early publicity shot (probably 1918, judging by his glasses) of (from top) Harry “Snub” Pollard, Virginia “Bebe” Daniels, and Harold Lloyd. These three worked together uninterrupted for over 4 years.
