GIRL SHY in 35mm

Live musical accompaniment by the Columbia Orchestra, performing an original score by Robert Israel

Shy, stuttering bachelor Harold Meadows (Harold Lloyd) spends his days secluded in a tailoring shop, writing the ultimate guide for bashful young men, "The Secret of Making Love." When Harold meets and falls in love with rich Mary, he must somehow stall her impending marriage. This is one of Lloyd's most popular feature-length films, featuring fantasy sequences enacting the chapters from his character's hopelessly misguided book, and his famous breathtaking race across town to halt the wedding. Many scenes were filmed in and around recognizable (and now not-so-recognizable) Hollywood landmarks, including the Garden Court Apartments, the Mary Moll residence (future site of the Roosevelt Hotel, built in 1927), the extant Johnny Grant Building and many more. A true early Hollywood experience, Harold Lloyd-style! (Note courtesy of the American Cinematheque.) DIR Fred C. Newmeyer; DIR/SCR Sam Taylor; SCR Ted Wilde, Tim Whelan; PROD Harold Lloyd. U.S., 1924, b&w, 87 min. Silent with English intertitles. NOT RATED
