Stair Acts by Harry Langdon, Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton
Harry Langdon - The Strong Man (1926) - Getting Upstairs
The Strong Man (1926) is the best crisply timed and almost perfectly place, it is also notable as Frank Copra's directorial debut.
Charlie Chaplin - Caught in the Rain (1914) - Falls Down
This film was the first of many movies in which Chaplin both directed and played the lead. In this scene, rushing up the stairs Charlie Chaplin slips, and slides comically back to the foot on his stomach.
Buster Keaton - The Electric House (1922) - Up the Stairs
During the original scheduled shooting of the film in 1920, Keaton suffered a broken leg filming a sequence with the electric staircase.
