“Safety Last” starring Harold Lloyd at BYU Silent Film Night Feb. 19

Celebrating 50 years of KBYU-FM

In celebration of its 50th anniversary, Brigham Young University’s Classical 89 (KBYU-FM) will be showing the 1923 silent movie classic “Safety Last” starring Harold Lloyd, Friday, Feb. 19, at 7:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall. Mike Ohman, premier theater organist, will accompany the film.

Tickets are $11 or $8 with a BYU or student ID and can be purchased online at byuarts.com, by phone at (801) 422-4322 or in person at the Harris Fine Arts Center Ticket Office. Two-for-one admission is available with a KBYU Membercard.

The movie is the story of an industrious fellow who climbs a skyscraper to win his girl. One of the highlights of the film features Lloyd hanging from the hands of a clock on the side of a building many stories above moving traffic.

"Harold Lloyd was a real gentleman and a great physical actor," said Ohman. "There is a scene where Harold climbs up the bricks of a building, and it is really him. He did all his own stunts despite losing a piece of two fingers when a cherry bomb exploded in his hands early in his career.”
