The kid brother 2

Though best known for his star vehicles Safety Last! (1923) and The Freshman *(1925), silent-era comedian Harold Lloyd considered this his favorite among the more than 200 movies and shorts he made over his career. Physical comedy abounds as Lloyd portrays Harold Hickory, the weakling of three brothers, who are the sons of a backwoods sheriff. When a shady medicine show rolls into town and makes off with the hamlet’s fortune, the ostracized sibling seizes the chance to save the day, win his father’s respect, and get the girl in the process. Full of sight gags and daredevil stunts, *The Kid Brother serves as the embodiment of Lloyd’s artistic philosophy: “Comedy comes from inside. It comes from your face. It comes from your body.” With live organ accompaniment from Plaza favorite Walt Strony at the Plaza theater’s original Wyler Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ.
