Most widely held works by Ted Wilde
Speedy( Visual )

2 editions published in 2015 and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was the last silent feature to star Harold Lloyd, and one of his very best. The slapstick legend reprises his "Glasses Character" this time as a good-natured but scatterbrained New Yorker who can't keep a job. He finally finds his true calling when he becomes determined to help save the city's last horse-drawn trolley, which is operated by his sweetheart's crusty grandfather
The freshman( Visual )

3 editions published in 2014 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though he dreams of being a big man on campus, the freshman's careful plans inevitably go hilariously awry, be it on the football field or at the Fall Frolic. But he gets a climactic chance to prove his mettle, and impress the sweet girl he loves, in one of the most famous sports sequences ever filmed. This crowd-pleaser is a gleeful showcase for Lloyd's slapstick brilliance and incandescent charm

Girl Shy by Fred Newmeyer( Visual )

Harold is a shy tailor's apprentice who has a pronounced stutter and is afraid of girls. He spends his lonely evenings writing a book called The Secret of Love Making until he is galvanized into action when he discovers that the girl he loves (Jobyna Ralston) is about to marry a bigamist. What follows is arguably the greatest race-to-the-rescue sequence of the entire silent cinema. The film's ending was the inspiration for Mike Nichol's The Graduate (1967) over forty years later. One of Lloyd's most influential and important films

For Heavens Sake( Visual )

1 edition published in 1926 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Lloyd plays J. Harold Manners, a millionaire playboy who inadvertently contributes to a skid row mission (which is then named in his honor). He meets and falls in love with Hope (Jobyna Ralston), the mission pastor’s daughter, when he visits the mission to protest his name being used. Under her influence, Manners makes parishioners out of all the seedy characters and tough men of the neighborhood.. When his idle club friends abduct him on his wedding day (believing they are preventing him from making a foolish mistake), Harold (with his inebriated groomsmen in tow) must race back to the mission so as not to miss his own wedding. The race-to-the-rescue sequence that climaxes For Heaven’s Sake on the double-decker open-top bus is one of Lloyd’s most memorable sequences
