SPEEDY
1928, Janus Films, 86 min, United States , Dir: Ted Wilde

Harold Lloyd makes his last silent appearance in this classic about a baseball-obsessed soda jerk who becomes a cab driver. Soon he's desperately trying to rescue the last horse-drawn streetcar line in town - which belongs to the father of his girl (Ann Christy) - from greedy railway magnates. Chaos ensues, including some of the most spectacular real-life chases ever filmed. Look for the legendary Babe Ruth as a nervous passenger in Lloyd’s cab.
