Lloyd: The Kid Brother (1927)
With Kevin Brownlow
Ted Wilde & Harold Lloyd US 82mins U
Lloyd is undoubtedly an icon of the silent era, and this film is an incredible testament to his talent.
Perfectly paced, it balances humour and action into a beautifully crafted story of a sheriff’s timid son, someone who has a chance to prove himself when a medicine show run by con artists comes into town.
With live piano accompaniment from John Sweeney.
Introduced by film historian and film director Kevin Brownlow with a personal message from Suzanne Lloyd (Lloyd’s granddaughter).
