Silent film with musical accompaniment

Suggested for children age 6 and older.

Alloy Orchestra premiered their score for Harold Lloyd’s Speedy at the 2001 Telluride Film Festival. This fast-paced, dramatic comedy filmed in the streets of New York explores the theme of modernization, pitting the last horse drawn trolley in the city against the evil forces of the transit monopoly. Speedy is Lloyd’s last silent film and certainly one of his best, clearly demonstrating why Lloyd was a more popular actor in the silent era than even Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. Silent film with English intertitles.
