Directed by Ted Wilde. With Harold Lloyd. This ebullient silent comedy tells of an ardent baseball fan who tries to save the last horse-drawn trolley line (run by his girlfriend’s grandfather) in speed-obsessed New York City. Partly filmed on location, the movie offers a fascinating look at 1920s NYC. Recorded music score by Carl Davis. (USA, 1928, b&w, Blu-ray, 86 min.)
Preceded at showtime by Manhatta, Charles Sheeler and Paul Strand’s silent “city symphony.” (USA, 1921, 12 min.)
