The History of Time in Movies...

One of the most famous images of early cinematography is of Harold Lloyd hanging on for dear life in the movie "Safety Last" which was released in 1923. 

Since then seeing clocks and watches in movies has increased, but it all started with this image.
Why?  Because men have only really been wearing watches on their wrist since the 1920s.  Prior to that all watches were pocket watches.
