Mildred Davis and Harold Lloyd smooch in the finale of “Safety Last” (1923)
Mildred Davis had a terrible fear of heights, and was very afraid to do the scene, so Harold sweetened the deal by giving her a beautiful diamond brooch as an incentive. There were also two men holding her ankles, out of camera range, to make her feel more secure.

Happy Birthday, Harold Clayton Lloyd (April 20th, 1893 - March 8th, 1971)
"My humor was never cruel or cynical. We just took life and poked fun at it. We made it so it could be understood the world over, without language barriers. We seem to have conquered the time barrier, as well."
