Speedy( Visual )

2 editions published in 2015 and held by 212 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 )

4 editions published in 2014 and held by 106 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
Speedy( Visual )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Speedy, ein etwas unsteter junger Mann und Baseballfanatiker, arbeitet nie länger als höchstens eine Woche in einem Job, was seiner Freundin nicht gefällt. Sie, die Enkelin des Besitzers einer Pferderennbahn, muß mindestens einmal am Tag ihre Strecke fahren, damit der Großvater seine Lizenz behält. Das wiederum versuchen Gangster im Auftrag einer Eisenbahngesellschaft zu verhindern. Speedy sorgt dafür, daß die Rechnung der Eisenbahngesellschaft nicht, die des Großvaters aber desto besser aufgeht. Der letzte und vielschichtigste Stummfilm Harold Lloyds, der durch seine Originalaufnahmen der New Yorker Schauplätze dokumentarischen Wert gewinnt." [film-dienst.de]
