As a father, Harold Lloyd had his share of quirks. He was extremely benevolent toward his youngest child, Harold, Jr., who he supported through more than a decade of false starts (and outright failures) in show business. Far more seriously, Harold Jr. was a submissive homosexual who would come home battered after a rough date--- his father demonstrated an unusual degree of acceptance toward homosexuality throughout his entire life. His sisters, however, were treated in far more Victorian terms. Harold Jr. was effectively lost soul after his father died and, like his mother (who died in 1969), was an alcoholic and seemingly unable to adjust to his sexuality. Sadly, he died at 39, almost 3 months to-the-day, after the death of his famous father.
