Speedy, one of the great comedies of the silent era, sees Harold Lloyd trying to save the last horse-drawn streetcar in New York. Full of fast-paced scenes of New York City street life in the late 1920s, the film literally races from one scene to the next—including a memorable excursions to the whirlwind amusement rides at Coney Island and Yankee Stadium (where Lloyd chauffeurs Babe Ruth, in an extended cameo). A breakneck (and side-splitting) portrait of modern life, Speedy offers a great introduction to the charms of Harold Lloyd and silent film in general. (85 mins., 35mm)
Columbus’s own Larry Marotta, a guitarist and composer known for his work with modernist jazz ensemble Honk, Wail and Moan and his improvised performances that draw on with eclectic musical interests provides live music.
