Plus rediscovered Lloyd short NEXT AISLE OVER (1919)
(1923) Salesclerk Harold’s “human fly” publicity stunt goes sour when, with the real climber on the lam from a cop, he gets stuck climbing the building himself. Shot without trick photography on rooftop sets, the oft-excerpted skyscraper climb/clock-hanging sequence is a deserved legend, but only the topper to a relentless succession of priceless gags. Approx. 74 min. 35mm.
“To see it today with an audience alternately roaring with laughter and gasping is one of the greatest experiences of cinema.”
– David Shipman
