Safety Last! (1923)

Safety Last! (1923)
March 23, 2014 - 11:00 am

Directed by Fred Newmeyer, Sam Taylor 

Attempting to impress the girl he hopes to marry, a department store clerk ends up in the middle of a wild publicity stunt to scale the side of a tall building.  Comic gags and edge-of-your-seat thrills--including the unforgettable image of Harold Lloyd dangling precariously from a clock--follow in rapid succession as Lloyd climbs his way to success in this iconic film.
