Movieland Wax Museum- Mad Wednesday

For today's post we see silent movie legend Harold Lloyd standing on the ledge of the building, trying to escape. In this motion picture, Lloyd plays Harold Diddlebock, a dry loser whose major accomplishment in life was scoring the winning touchdown in a college football game. After a night of drinking and careless spending, he ends up the owner of a circus, and comedy ensues.

A close up of the wax figure. Harold wears his trademark glasses.

The scene with the flash on. The set has a strange mood about it, since the building and figures are in color, but the backdrop is in black and white.

A close up of Jackie the Lion.

The clapboard sign is technically incorrect. The title was originally called The Sin of Harold Diddlebock. After some reshoots and some edits, the film was rereleased as Mad Wednesday in 1950.

The Harold Lloyd figure was sold at the Movieland auction for $800, and the set sold for $1000.
