Ted Wilde & Harold Lloyd US 82mins U

Slapstick legend Harold Lloyd stars in one of the greatest ever silent comedies ‘The Kid Brother’.

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).
