Myself and another HL fanatic(Nikki McKim) are trying to get something organized for Harold's Birthday. Since his Birthday is on a Monday we are hoping to get people to his birthplace on that Saturday before, April 18th.
We are in the starting stages as of last tonight.
We are trying to get a hold of people by, snail mail, email, phone, etc and see what we can do if anything. I was wondering if anyone had any contacts, ideas or if anyone would be close enough to come to Burchard, NE
for it? I'm driving about 2 1/2 hours and Nikki's about an hour away.
We were thinking maybe some light food, a movie at dusk (if we can get the rights/film print) and just some good Harold Lloyd conversation and fun! We can also tour his childhood home that is still standing in the town. It's the 85th anniversary of Girl Shy
, so we think its about time we celebrated big and that's the film we'll try to get. We'll be showing this outdoors and projected on a big screen through a film projector! No video here! :)
Let's give Harold the Credit he deserves! Any suggestions are happily welcome! Also we need people to help spread the word about this. Email or PM me for more info.

(DCR Radio is providing film equipment to show the movie that night. To make this event possible, we need the support of others too.)
P.S. A certain granddaughter is also going to be helping with this event. More info on that soon! :)
