This two-disc collection is mastered from 35mm restoration prints overseen by The Harold Lloyd Trust, which should represent the best-surviving prints of these seven Harold Lloyd shorts and feature films.

We fully expect that this collection will be the best-available editions of these wonderful films, and recommend it sight unseen.
