Legendary comedian Harold Lloyd made his final silent film with this fast and fun adventure. “Speedy” Swift (Lloyd) loves two things, baseball and his girlfriend Jane (Ann Christy). Speedy thinks of a way to save his girlfriend’s grandfather’s struggling trolley business and meets some of his baseball idols in the process. The film was shot on location on Coney Island and real-life baseball legends Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig make cameos as themselves. In keeping with Plaza Classic Film Festival tradition, the great organist Walt Strony will accompany the film on the Plaza Theatre’s restored, original Wyler Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ. — Jack Fields
