♪ Live Piano Accompaniment by Steve Sterner
Directed by Sam Taylor, Fred C. Newmeyer
Starring Harold Lloyd, Jobyna Ralston
Approx. 76 min. 35mm print courtesy Harold Lloyd Trust.
Eager-to-please frosh Harold introduces himself with a nifty-keen jig, goes broke on soda shop treats, makes the team as a tackling dummy, but finally gets his chance at the Big Game. Harold’s satire of 20s college and football mania was his biggest silent success.
“The anxieties and excitement over starting anew is put in a cringe-inducing spotlight in Harold Lloyd’s mesmerizing THE FRESHMAN”
