100th Anniversary Showing!
A boy (Harold Lloyd) moves to New York City to make enough money to support his loving girlfriend (Mildred Davis), but soon discovers that making it in the big city is harder than it looks. When he hears that a store manager will pay $1,000 to anyone who can draw people to his store, he convinces his friend, the “human fly,” (Bill Strother) to climb the building and split the profit with him. But when his pal gets in trouble with the law, he must complete the crazy stunt on his own.
1923, 74 minutes, Directed by Fred Newmeyer and Sam Taylor
"The large and growing number of Harold Lloyd fans will enjoy Safety Last. It is full of the tricks which have earned him his friends, and in some scenes he is probably funnier than in any previous picture."- Carl Sanburg, CHICAGO DAILY NEWS
"It is marvelously ingenious. It is brimming with tricks that are calculated to tickle the ribs and chill the spine at one and the same instant."- Robert E. Sherwood, LIFE
"It is another testimonial that one touch of Harold makes the whole world grin, and in addition to grinning it will make the fans laugh, chuckle and chortle with glee."- Stanley C. Warrick, MOVING PICTURE WORLD
