Speedy - Criterion Collection
  • Description

    Speedy was the last silent feature to star Harold Lloyd – and one of his very best. The slapstick legend reprises his “Glasses Character,” this time as a good-natured but scatter-brained New Yorker who can’t keep a job. He finally finds his true calling when he becomes determined to help save the city’s last horse-drawn streetcar, which is operated by his sweetheart’s crusty grandfather. From its joyous visit to Coney Island to its incredible Babe Ruth cameo to its hair-raising climatic stunts on the city’s streets, Speedy is an out-of-control love letter to New York that will have you grinning from ear to ear.

    Special Features:

    • New 4K digital restoration from elements preserved by the UCLA Film & Television Archive
    • Musical score by composer Carl Davis from 1992, synchronized and restored under his supervision and presented in uncompressed stereo
    • New audio commentary featuring Bruce Goldstein, director of repertory programming at New York’s Film Forum, and Turner Classic Movies director of program production Scott McGee
    • In the Footsteps of “Speedy” – a new short documentary by Goldstein about the film’s New York shoot
    • Selection of rare archival footage of baseball legend Babe Ruth, who has a cameo in the film, presented by David Filipi, director of film and video at the Wexner Centre for the Arts
    • New video essay featuring stills of deleted scenes from the film and narrated by Goldstein
    • Selection of actor Harold Lloyd’s home movies, narrated by his granddaughter, Suzanne Lloyd
    • Bumping into Broadway – a 1919 Lloyd two-reeler, newly restored and with a 2004 score by Robert Israel
    • PLUS: An essay by critic Phillip Lopate
