Safety Last! Trailer

Timeless. Janus Films has unveiled a fun trailer for their upcoming digitally restored re-release of Safety Last!, the classic 1923 silent film starring Harold Lloyd that made him and the image of him hanging off the clock an icon. The studio painstakingly cleaned up a 2K digital transfer of an original nitrate print and re-synced Carl Davis' score, and is planning to re-release this in theaters during the summer. Safety Last! is one of those timeless classics that should be seen by everyone, and this is a rare chance to actually catch it in theaters. Janus debuted this trailer and a poster to build re-release buzz, so take a look and spread the word.

Here's the brand new re-release trailer for Harold Lloyd's Safety Last! (1923), found via The Film Stage:

Laugh-out-loud funny and jawdropping in equal measure, Safety Last! is an unforgettable movie experience from a genuine legend. Janus Films is proud to celebrate the 90th anniversary of Lloyd's crowning achievement with a new DCP restoration sourced from an original nitrate element as well as freshly-struck 35mm prints, all featuring Carl Davis's sparkling score. The DCP of Safety Last! was created from a 2K transfer of an original nitrate print. Over 300 hours of digital work went into cleaning the image. Composer Carl Davis then re-synced his original score to the restored master to create the best possible match for theatrical presentation. Safety Last! will be showing throughout April, May & June - screening info here.

This is great but I really never had a problem looking at the older footage

'a pair of glasses and a smile'. outstanding news. anything that can expose more people to Harold Lloyd is a good thing. i watched his films on tv when i was pretty small, but they had a big impact even then, and i own them now. so many comedians since owe a huge debt to Lloyd, as well as to Keaton and Chaplin of course, and in many cases have only provided pale imitations. here's to the originators.
