Trailer: The Rerelease Of Harold Lloyd’s Classic SAFETY LAST


Ninety years ago today,Harold Lloyd’s classic silent comedy Safety Last opened to rave reviews and boffo box office business. Later this summer, the Criterion Collection will be releasing a new remastering of the film on DVD and blu-ray. But prior to that, Janus Films will be touring the film around the country this spring. The trailer for their rerelease is below and you can find dates for where the film will be showing here.

If you haven’t seen the movie, you’re in for a real treat as Lloyd pulls off a number of stunts that will leave you both laughing and gasping. Lloyd didn’t call his films “thrill comedies” for nothing. It is easy to how he was a major influence on Hong Kong superstar Jackie Chan.

And if you have seen the film before, you haven’t seen it presented this cleanly. Besides, it’s always more fun to see a comedy with a large group of people.
