Dir: Ted Wilde | USA | 1928 | 105 mins
Cast: Harold Lloyd, Ann Christy, Bert Woodruff, Babe Ruth

American comedian Harold Lloyd saves the last horse-drawn trolley car from extinction in Speedy, his last silent comedy – and one of his best. An engaging caper shot on location in New York, Speedy shows off the city as it was in 1928, including a breathtaking sequence at Coney Island’s Luna Park, a taxi ride with baseball legend Babe Ruth (plus a cameo from Ruth’s famous Yankee teammate, Lou Gehrig) and a hair-raising finale chase through the streets of Manhattan.

Accompanied live improvised piano by acclaimed silent film pianist Neil Brand.
