Speedy (Dir. Ted Wilde, US, 1928) (Screening format – BluRay, 86mins) Harold Lloyd’s final silent film sees him reprise his ‘glasses character’ as a baseball-obsessed New Yorker (the film features a cameo from the legendary Babe Ruth) who becomes determined to save the city’s last horse-drawn streetcar, motivated in no small part by its owner being the grandfather of his love interest. Filled with Lloyd’s trademark rapid-fire visual humour and elaborate set-ups, it’s a fine example of his innovative approach to comedy. Find out more at allmovie.com. Presented as part of the IFI’s 25th anniversary celebrations. With recorded soundtrack. Irish Film Institute, Dublin Link
