Here is an early film version of the routine performed by Harold Lloyd for a 1918 comedy called Follow the Crowd.
One of the best choreographed versions of the routine appeared in Buster Keaton's The High Sign (1921).
This routine was used to a lesser extent in sound films. Here is an example of the routine from Marx Brothers' last M-G-M feature, The Big Store (1941).
