Other Screenings

Silent cinema reached creative heights in the 1920s, which made it even more difficult for those who wanted to start the era of talking cinema. Alongside the like of Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd perfected the romantic slapstick comedy genre of silent cinema. Though the film's composer, Carl Davis, did not work with the director, and added the soundtrack 20 years after Lloyd's death, one can take solace in the fact that he is an accomplished composer, who worked with figures such as Paul McCartney .

USA 1923 | 74 minutes | Silent | Hebrew subtitles

A crazy silent comedy about an ambitious young man. Includes Lloyd's famous, hair-raising climb up the side of a building.
