SAFETY LAST!

Silent film (English version) starring Harold Lloyd, accompanied by Franz Danksagmüller on the piano

Content
Shot in 1923, this film is the story of the 'common man' and his everyday struggles for social dignity in the 1920s. A country bumpkin tries his luck as a salesman at a big-city department store in the hope of becoming rich and being able to marry his girlfriend. However, his career is less successful than he claims in the reports he sends home to his girlfriend, who remains in the small town. When she surprises him by visiting, he has to go to great lengths to avoid being exposed as a liar. Amongst other things, he is forced to work as an industrial climber on a skyscraper, leading to the famous clock scene that is now considered one of the classics of the comedy silent movie genre. The film uses symbolism masterfully as Lloyd's professional and social ascent depends on having a head for heights and being a skilful climber. Lloyd's scaling of the skyscraper at the end of the film – which could end in success or just as easily in a fall and death – is a humorous allusion to the fight for survival.

Artist
Franz Danksagmüller is an Austrian composer and organist who has made a name for himself with live soundtracks for silent films. He will accompany the film on a grand piano as well as electronic instruments including a Gulliphon, an instrument he developed himself.
