Harold Lloyd - Human Tackling Dummy From the hugely underappreciated silent film genius Harold Lloyd, here is a scene from his brilliant 1925 comedy The Freshman. In this flick Lloyd plays Harold Lamb. Lamb tries to become the most popular man on the Tate University campus by, among other things, trying out for the school's football team. He spectacularly fails. But after the team's tackling dummy falls apart, Tate's coach puts Harold to use as a human version. As in all his films, Lloyd performed his own stunts, so he is taking all the blows in this clips. Some of the football players abusing Harold are members of the Southern Cal pigskin squad.

Bing Davdison Tragic Death One of Hollywood's lesser known tragedies was the death of small-time actor James (Bing) Davidson, a 25-year-old Nebraskan who fell to his doom in 1965. Davidson, whose screen credits show just three small roles, was in the company of actor Paul Lynde in San Francisco on July 17, 1965. Lynde was well known to be a heavy drinker; he and Davidson had both heavily imbibed that night. At some point of drunkenness at the Drake Hotel, Davidson decided to demonstrate a daredevil stunt--hanging from a balcony by his fingertips. In full view of several horrified onlookers (and police officers who had been summoned), Davidson lost his grip and fell to his death from the eighth floor of the hotel. Lynde was absolved of any blame, but the incident was hushed up for years as the circumstances surrounding it may have derailed Lynde's acting career.

Gordon Griffith - First Movie Tarzan Most film history sources will list Elmo Lincoln as the first actor to play Tarzan on screen (in the 1918 silent film Tarzan of the Apes). That's not entirely true. In that same silent film, a 10-year-old boy named Gordon Griffith played the young Tarzan well before Lincoln appeared on the screen. It was a challenging role for the boy actor. Griffith was required to do his own climbing and acrobatic stunts and interact with live chimpanzees--which he did excellently. True to the Edgar Rice Burroughs book, Tarzan wore no clothes as a youth, so most of Griffith's scenes were shot with him totally nude. There was no national film code in 1918, but some scenes that showed too much of Griffith from the front were cut by local censors, including those in Chicago. Thus the public domain prints of the movie vary in length and in the amount of time Griffith was on the screen. Griffith, who like Tarzan lost both his parents at a young age, spent most of his life in the movie industry. He died in 1958 of a heart attack at the age of 51.
