Details

The Humanities Center is excited to present Silent Film Fridays, where select Friday afternoons we will be showing a famous silent film throughout the Spring semester. Come enjoy the origins of film with your friends and watch where it all started.

This week's film is "Safety Last!" (1923), directed by Fred C. Newmeyer and Sam Taylor. 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.
