What You'll Get
As part of its Second Saturday Silent Cinema series, Chicago’s Music Box Theatre presents a screening of Harold Lloyd’s classic silent film, Speedy. Part of the “holy trinity” of silent comedians along with Chaplin and Keaton, the bespectacled Lloyd is hilarious as an ex-soda jerk who bounces from Coney Island to Yankee Stadium to the mean streets of Manhattan in a series of comic misadventures (one of which memorably involves Babe Ruth himself). Speedy was filmed almost entirely on location in New York City. Though the film is silent, the experience is anything but as Dennis Scott, a silent-film organist for over 20 years, performs the jazzy score inside the Music Box’s gorgeous, Italian palazzo-like structure.
