    • Harold Zoid's final film effort fails. This may be referencing Charlie Chaplin's final Hollywood film (which was also his first talkie), The Great Dictator. Response Probably not, as The Great Dictator was neither Chaplin's last Hollywood film, nor was it a failure. In fact, it was Chaplin's biggest grossing film of all time. Harold Lloyd's last film however, The Sin of Harold Diddlebock (aka Mad Wednesday), was a critical and commercial failure. It should be noted that other than the name and a few superficial similarities, Harold Lloyd had little in common with Harold Zoid. Lloyd owned the production company that made most of his films and retained ownership of them. He retired as one of the richest actors in Hollywood. Lloyd never had any doubts about the legacy he had left with his films, and anyone who has seen one properly presented in a theater with live music will attest that Harold Lloyd made some of the funniest and most exciting films ever made.
