        Interesting how they pulled off car stunts even way back then without CG or any of the ultra complicated camera systems they use today.

      An apocryphal tale about NYC traffic. The Tii-Boro (now RFK) bridge was built in the 1930s, to solve the access issues to Manhattan once and for all! (maybe this clip inspired the construction!!) Supposedly there was a traffic jam on the bridge less than a wek after it opened.

      Harold Lloyd is always a hoot. I also remembered reading about the horse trolley;
