Family Flicks: Safety Last!
Co-presented with UCLA Film & Television Archive
Recommended for age 6+
Attempting to impress the girl he hopes to marry, a department store clerk ends up in the middle of a wild publicity stunt. Comic gags and edge-of-your-seat thrills— including the unforgettable image of Harold Lloyd dangling precariously from a clock—follow in rapid succession as Lloyd climbs his way to success in this iconic film. (1923, Dir. Fred Newmeyer and Sam Taylor, 35mm, b/w, silent with musical accompaniment, 64 min.)
Live musical accompaniment provided by Cliff Retallick.
