The collaboration between the ICO and IMA continues with the screening of another classic silent film, Harold Lloyd’s Speedy (1928). Chronically unemployed Yankees fan Harold "Speedy" Swift (Harold Lloyd) dates Jane Dillon (Ann Christy), a girl whose beloved grandfather, Pop (Bert Woodruff), runs a failing horse-drawn trolley business, in a rapidly changing city where the railway is becoming king. When a crooked railroad official steals Pop's last car, hoping to force him into a shutdown, Speedy must race against the clock to find the culprits, return the car in time and keep the service running on schedule.
(1928, dir. Ted Wilde, 85 mins., NR)
