Elsinore Wednesday Film Series in #SalemOR – SPEEDY

Speedy

(Ted Wilde, USA, 1928) *SILENT*

February 11 at 7:00 pm

“Speedy” Swift (Harold Lloyd) is an obsessed baseball fan living in New York in the roaring 1920s.  If Speedy expects to marry his girlfriend (Ann Christy), he must first save her grandfather’s business from ruin ––the last remaining horse-drawn trolley in the city.  Memorable for its comic staging, extensive NYC locations, a hair-raising trolley chase sequence, and an appearance by “Babe” Ruth himself.  86 minutes.

“One of its star’s most stylish comedies and his last silent film.”  ––Halliwell’s Film Guide
