Lloyd: The Kid Brother (1927)
With Suzanne Lloyd
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 Suzanne Lloyd (Lloyd’s granddaughter).
