McDonald at the Movies: Safety Last!

Thu, May 9 / 7 pm
Directed by Fred C. Newmeyer & Sam Taylor
1923, USA, 80 min

Once a month, comedian, star and co-founder of Kids in the Hall, comic Kevin McDonald will introduce a film handpicked from the archives of comic history.

Introduced by Kevin McDonald.

With its perfectly executed gags and astonishing stunts, Safety Last! is the perfect introduction to the comic artistry of silent comedian Harold Lloyd. A small-town bumpkin trying to make it in the big city finds employment as a lowly department-store clerk. A wild publicity stunt he designs to draw attention to the store results in an incredible feat of derring-do that gets him started on the climb to success.

Reviews

Needs to be seen on a big screen with a full house ... Lloyd was a master of timing who calibrated each shot to the laughter and gasps of a large public, building crescendos as surely as any great composer.
– Dave Kehr, The New York Times
