Speedy was the last silent feature to star Harold Lloyd – and one of his very best. The slapstick legend reprises his “Glasses Character,” this time as a good-natured but scatter-brained New Yorker who can’t keep a job. He finally finds his true calling when he becomes determined to help save the city’s last horse-drawn streetcar, which is operated by his sweetheart’s crusty grandfather. From its joyous visit to Coney Island to its incredible Babe Ruth cameo to its hair-raising climatic stunts on the city’s streets, Speedy is an out-of-control love letter to New York that will have you grinning from ear to ear.

Special Features:

  • New 4K digital restoration from elements preserved by the UCLA Film & Television Archive
  • Musical score by composer Carl Davis from 1992, synchronized and restored under his supervision and presented in uncompressed stereo
  • New audio commentary featuring Bruce Goldstein, director of repertory programming at New York’s Film Forum, and Turner Classic Movies director of program production Scott McGee
