Yorkshire Silent Film & Hull Independent Cinema present

Safety Last! (U)

Dir. Fred Newmayer and Sam Taylor

One of the most famous of all silent film comedies, Safety Last! features Harold Lloyd’s most celebrated, daredevil stunt as he climbs a twelve storey department store building with his bare hands. The shot of him dangling dangerously from the second hand of the clock face is perhaps silent film’s most famous. Laugh-loud funny and astonishingly daring, this is visual comedy at its absolute zenith and a great introduction to silent film.

Live piano accompaniment by Jonathan Best.

N.B. This is a film screening as part of Hull Truck Screen and will include adverts and trailers.

‘Harold Lloyd manages to make the characters sympathetic enough to carry the audience's concern on his journey of crazy stunts and mishaps. One of the best of this era’
