The Music House Museum is proud to welcome organist Andrew Rogers accompanying the 1923 classic silent film “Safety Last” and the short “Ask Father” starring Harold Lloyd Saturday May 13 at 2:00PM and again at 5:00PM
Safety Last! is a 1923 American silent romantic-comedy film starring Harold Lloyd. It includes one of the most famous images from the silent-film era: Lloyd clutching the hands of a large clock as he dangles from the outside of a skyscraper above moving traffic. The film was highly successful and critically hailed, and it cemented Lloyd's status as a major figure in early motion pictures. The film's title is a play on the common expression "safety first", which prioritizes safety to avoid accidents, especially in workplaces. Lloyd performed some of the climbing stunts himself,
Ask Father is a short, 13-minute, slapstick-style comedy made by Lloyd in 1919 before his entry into full-length feature films.
The film will be accompanied by Andrew Rogers on our ‘Mighty’Wurlitzer theater organ. Rogers, a Detroit native, is an organist at the Michigan Theatre in Ann Arbor. He also scores and performs silent films, and performs concerts throughout the U.S. and Internationally.
