Safety Last! - The Criterion Collection

£17.99

Released: 14th September 2020. The comic genius of silent star Harold Lloyd is eternal. Chaplin was the sweet innocent, Keaton the stoic outsider, but Lloyd—the modern guy striving for success—is us. And with its torrent of perfectly executed gags and astonishing stunts, Safety Last! is the perfect introduction to him. Lloyd plays a small-town bumpkin trying to make it in the big city, who finds employment as a lowly department-store clerk. He comes up with a wild publicity stunt to draw attention to the store, resulting in an incredible feat of derring-do on his part that gets him started on the climb to success. Laugh-out-loud funny and jaw-dropping in equal measure, Safety Last! is a movie experience par excellence, anchored by a genuine legend. Special Features New 2K digital film restoration  Musical score by composer Carl Davis from 1989, synchronized and restored under his supervision and presented in uncompressed stereo on the Blu-ray edition  Alternate score by organist Gaylord Carter from the late 1960s, presented in uncompressed monaural on the Blu-ray edition  Audio commentary featuring film critic Leonard Maltin and director and Harold Lloyd archivist Richard Correll  Introduction by Suzanne Lloyd, Lloyd’s granddaughter and president of Harold Lloyd Entertainment  Harold Lloyd: The Third Genius, a 104-minute documentary from 1989 Three newly restored Lloyd shorts: Take a Chance (1918), Young Mr. Jazz (1919), and His Royal Slyness (1920), with commentary by Correll and film writer John Bengtson  Locations and Effects, a new documentary featuring Bengtson and special effects expert Craig Barron  New interview with Davis  PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Ed Park
