* Played with a couple of times in early Creator/HaroldLloyd short ''Film/AskFather''. Harold is trying to get into his girlfriend's father's office to ask for her hand, but the father has some radical security measures. The first is a variation on this trope, a hidden conveyor belt that sends Harold zooming out of the office.
