With In The Footsteps of Speedy.
In this acclaimed 30-minute documentary, Bruce Goldstein, Film Forum’s Director of Repertory Programming, takes us on a tour of the NYC locations captured by Lloyd and his Hollywood crew for Speedy – many of them only steps away from Film Forum (along with vivid scenes shot in Coney Island, Midtown, Sutton Place, Yankee Stadium, etc.). Edited and photographed by William Hohauser. (Bruce Goldstein, 2015, digital, approx. 30 min.)
“No filmmaker had ever made such flamboyant use of New York.”
