curated by Suzanne Lloyd
SAILOR-MADE MAN (1924, 48 mins. Directed by Fred C. Newmeyer, starring Harold Lloyd, Mildred Davis)
The idle son of a millionaire, Lloyd joins the Navy to proof himself worthy of marrying the girl he loves. Having landed in a harbor in the Orient, his beloved who is vacationing with her father nearby, is kidnapped by a lecherous maharajah and his hordes. The time to proof his heroism has come.
"Lloyd exhibits the athletic prowess and sight gags that cemented his reputation as one of the great comedy legends of all time." (Rotten Tomatoes)
HIGH AND DIZZY (1920, 26 mins. Directed by Hal Roach. starring Harold Lloyd and Mildred Davis)
The film revolves around a tipsy doctor, his sleepwalking patient and love interest, and a prohibition-era police-man, who the drunk doctor and buddy want to get away from. The climactic, skyscraper-scaling scene anticipates the later Safety Last (1923)
THE GROUNDS OPEN AT 5:00 p.m.
