* One of Hollywood's earliest examples comes from ''Film/GirlShy'', a 1924 silent film starring physical comedian Harold Lloyd as Harold Meadows. Near the film's end, Harold discovers that his love Mary is about to marry a man who is secretly a bigamist. He takes it upon himself to stop the wedding...and, in a CrowningMomentOfAwesome, engages in a ''twenty minute'' chase to do so, riding everything from the ladder of a fire engine to a few streetcars to a horse to reach Mary in time. What makes it especially impressive is that Lloyd did all of his own stunts for the sequence.
