New 2K restoration! Laugh-out-loud funny and jawdropping in equal measure, this unforgettable comedy classic brings Harold Lloyd's stunt-filled antics back to the big screen.
With a torrent of perfectly executed gags and astonishing stunts, Safety Last! is the perfect introduction to the world of Harold Lloyd. Here he plays a small-town bumpkin trying to make it in the big city, who finds employment as a lowly department store clerk. He comes up with a wild publicity stunt to draw attention to the store, resulting in an incredible feat of derring-do that gives him a head start on the climb to success.
Janus Films celebrates the 90th anniversary of Lloyd's crowning achievement with a new DCP restoration sourced from an original nitrate element, featuring a sparkling original orchestral score by Carl Davis.
