Courtesy Weird Universe, Harold Lloyd -- supported by a non-actor you'll recognize -- takes us on a drive through New York City traffic a mere eighty-one years ago. --I'd embed it but better you should enjoy in context!
...Back? I know how the wilder driving scenes were accomplished (just like you think), a nicely-done example of an early technical effect but the balance work? Probably had some hardware to help but that's a gen-u-ine practical stunt. Yowza!
(Bonus: accompanied by my all-time fave style of music. And I don't care who knows. Brave, I am).
