Harold Lloyd Brooklyn – Speedy Tour

Harold Lloyd Brooklyn – Speedy Tour – Film Forum October 21, 22, 2012

I will be presenting Harold Lloyd’s final silent comedy Speedy (1928) at 3:10 pm on Sunday, October 21, 2012, and at 7:30 pm on Monday, October 22,  at Film Forum, 209 West Houston Street, New York, NY 10014, based on the discoveries in my new Lloyd book Silent Visions.  Using animated slides I will lead viewers to dozens of landmarks and forgotten byways across town, in what is the first comprehensive study of New York’s most prominent role in a major silent film.  The following PDF tour, accessed by clicking the link below, shows the Brooklyn locations appearing during the film.  Of course the Coney Island sequences from the movie were also filmed in Brooklyn, but I cover that as an entirely separate chapter in my book.

    Hi John,
    The ‘Speedy’ walking tour is fantastic – another superb effort.
