Harold Clayton Lloyd & Mildred Hillary Davis

Harold Clayton Lloyd Sr. (1893 –1971) was an American actor, comedian, film director, film producer, screenwriter, and stunt performer, who is most famous for his silent comedy films.
Mildred Hillary Davis (1901 – 1969) was an American actress who appeared in many of Harold Lloyd's classic silent comedies and eventually became his wife.
The couple had three children including Gloria Lloyd and Harold Lloyd Jr. They remained very close for their entire life together. Although Lloyd's individual films were not as commercially successful as Chaplin's on average, he was far more prolific (releasing twelve feature films in the 1920s while Chaplin released just four), and made more money overall ($15.7 million to Chaplin's $10.5 million).
Both were regular beret wearers.
