Dec. 25, 1962: "To Harold Lloyd, Christmas has always been a great feast at home. The mammoth tree stands in a high, vaulted room, the center of the family gathering. But Lloyd has been away a great deal this year because the reissue of his old pictures came in at the box office as strong as in his heyday, captured the heart of the world all over again. He never had time to supervise the taking down of 1961's tree and there it stands this year--gleaming, golden, fabulous. Some of the green has faded to a soft olive-beige; it's a fragile old beauty but will see this year out."
