His imagination gave American silent screen comedy what is considered some of its greatest moments. Formerly a Tin Pan Alley lyricist, he came to Hollywood in 1915. From 1919 to 1923 he worked for producer Hal Roach and wrote stories and gags for Harold Lloyd, memorably the Human Fly sequence of "Safety Last" (1923), in which Lloyd was forced to climb a skyscraper and wound up clinging to life from the hands of a clock. Havez then became Buster Keaton's top gag writer and brought his delightful sense of the absurd to Keaton's films "The Three Ages" (1923), "Our Hospitality" (1923), "Sherlock, Jr." (1924), "The Navigator" (1924), and "Seven Chances" (1925).
