Screening as part of the 'Nothing But Time' cinema program.
One of the great silent film comedians, Harold Lloyd stars in this romantic comedy as a regular country lad trying to make it in the big city. Lloyd’s ‘everyman’ character in Safety Last! 1923 is a department store employee who dreams up an impossible stunt to advertise the shop and bring in more customers. What ensues results in one of the most iconic images in the history of cinema — Lloyd dangling precariously from the hands of a giant skyscraper clock! Accompanied by David Bailey on the Gallery’s 1929 Wurlitzer organ.
