Harold Lloyd's Last Film — With Preston Sturges and Howard Hughes

Harold Lloyd's Last Film — With Preston Sturges and Howard Hughes

Sturges and Lloyd collaborated on a 1947 film that resembles The Hangover


Preston Sturges was so desperate to direct that he sold one of his scripts for $10 — then persuaded silent film and talkie star Harold Lloyd to star.


This is a story that induces Howard Hughes, a secret tunnel to the Chateau Marmont, and some very funny insights by Sturges' son, Tom Sturges.


It also notes the amusing similarities between 1947's The Sin of Harold Diddlebock, which has some interesting parallels with Todd Phillips massive 2009 hit The Hangover.
