SPEEDY

Plus rediscovered Harold Lloyd short LOOK PLEASANT PLEASE (1918), featuring Bebe Daniels and "Snub" Pollard.

(1928) Jazz Age idols meet, as baseball-crazy soda jerk/cabbie Harold and passenger Babe Ruth (the Sultan of Swat playing himself) hurtle to old Yankee Stadium. Extensive New York location work is highlighted during a frenzied finale, as Harold races Gotham’s last horse-drawn trolley right through Washington Square Arch! The El beam crash was an actual accident immediately written into the script. “No filmmaker has ever made such flamboyant use of New York” – Kevin Brownlow. Approx. 95 min. 35mm.
