HAROLD LLOYD’S NEW YORK: Author John Bengtson introduces SPEEDY

John Bengston, author of Silent Visions: Discovering Early Hollywood and New York Through the Films of Harold Lloyd, will introduce the screenings of Speedy, the 1928 Lloyd feature shot on location in New York City. Highlighting visions of a bygone age preserved in the background of Harold Lloyd's films, Silent Visions explores the urban landscapes of Hollywood, Los Angeles, and New York – popular settings for his films – through archival photographs, vintage maps, and scores of then-and-now photographs. Speedy features extensive New York locations (including a chase through Washington Square Arch) and a guest appearance by Babe Ruth – the 1920s version of the Beatles meeting Muhammed Ali.
