Still image from the film Safety Last
In an attempt to impress his girlfriend (Mildred Davis), poor but lovestruck Harold (Harold Lloyd) devises an ingenious publicity stunt—scaling the side of a twelve-story building—that he himself gets roped into performing. Giving new meaning to the term “social climber,” Safety Last! showcases Lloyd’s most hilarious performance and confirms his place in the pantheon of great silent comedians beside Keaton and Chaplin. In honor of its ninetieth anniversary, see this beloved classic in a newly restored print that makes it look better than ever. (New 2K DCP presentation)
