Speedy (1928) Harold Lloyd





Speedy (1928) Harold Lloyd

Speedy is a 1928 silent film that was one of the films to be nominated for the short-lived Academy Award for Best Director of a Comedy. The film stars famous comedian Harold Lloyd in the eponymous leading role and it was his last silent film to be released in theatres.

The film was written by Albert DeMond (titles), John Grey (story), J.A. Howe (story), Lex Neal (story), and Howard Emmett Rogers (story) with uncredited assistance from Al Boasberg and Paul Girard Smith. The film was directed by Ted Wilde, the last silent film to be directed by him, and was shot in both Hollywood, and on location in New York City.

The plot revolves around Harold 'Speedy' Swift's attempts to save the last horse-drawn streetcar in New York. The film contrasts the speed of life of the contemporary city with the pace of yesteryear, represented by this non-motorized mode of transport. Yankees star Babe Ruth plays one of 'Speedy's' hapless passengers.

There is a scene in the film where Speedy is seen giving the finger to himself while looking in a distorted mirror which may be the earliest motion picture depiction of that gesture.

Gloria Swanson, Barbara Stanwyck, Fifi D'Orsay ~ Pre--code




Tonight or Never (1931) Gloria Swanson, Boris Karloff

Tonight or Never is a 1931 American Pre-Code comedy film directed by Mervyn LeRoy, starring Gloria Swanson,  Melvyn Douglas, Constancfe Cummings and featuring Boris Karloff.

The Hays Code strongly objected to the film and demanded a lot of cuts to be made.

The scene which the Code thought to be the most vulgar was the love scene between Nella and Jim. A staff member commented: 'This scene was one of the most offensive, if not the most offensive-in my recollection.”

 In 1931, it was allowed to be released, but the request of re-releases in 1935 and 1937 were rejected.



Night Nurse (‘931) Barbara Stanwyck

Barbara Stanwyck was at her best in PreCodes (though I think "Illicit" is a better film) and Joan Blondell packs a punch as her nurse friend. This film has a plot to kill children, a nymphomanical mother, drug references and Clark Gable mobbing up again as Nick, the chauffeur.




The Girl from Calgary (1932) Fifi D’Orsay

1932 American Pre-Code musical comedy film directed by Phil Whitman, and starring Fifi D'Orsay and Paul Kelly.
