Thursday, April 18 – 7:30 PM KEATON & LLOYD
Double Feature: SAFETY LAST!, 1923, Janus Films, 73 min. Dirs. Fred C. Newmeyer, Sam Taylor. The comic genius of silent star Harold Lloyd is eternal. Chaplin is the sweet innocent, Keaton the stoic outsider, but Lloyd - the modern guy striving for success - is us. And with its torrent of perfectly executed gags and astonishing stunts, SAFETY LAST! is the perfect introduction to him. Lloyd plays a small-town bumpkin trying to make it in the big city, who finds employment as a lowly department-store clerk. He comes up with a wild publicity stunt to draw attention to the store, resulting in an incredible feat of derring-do on his part that gets him started on the climb to success – a climb that results in one of the most iconic images in film history, as Lloyd dangles from a clock high above the streets of Los Angeles.
THE NAVIGATOR, 1924, Cohen Media, 59 min. Dir. Buster Keaton. Wealthy Rollo Treadway (Keaton) and Betsy, who has rejected his proposal of marriage, find themselves on the Navigator, a ship that Betsy's rich father has recently sold to a tiny country at war. When the Navigator drifts out to sea and grounds itself near a tropical island, Rollo and Betsy must not only learn to play house on the gigantic boat but fend off unhappy island natives who attack the vessel! One of the best of Keaton's career, THE NAVIGATOR is filled with unbeatable sight gags, including Buster's scuba-diving excursion with a giant squid, and a submarine that emerges at the perfect moment!
