    Description

    Speedy (Paramount, 1928). Very Fine-. Glass Slide (3.25" X 4").
    A rare item be because of its fragility, this marks Heritage's first time to present a glass slide for the hilarious feature Speedy. Harold Lloyd, one of silent cinema's greatest comedic talents, is a delight to watch in this, his last silent film. He plays a young man out of work who gets a job as a cabby in New York City. The film also features Babe Ruth in a small role as himself on the way to the game at Yankee Stadium. Completely intact, the slide has a few smudges, surface scuffs, and a couple of small scratches.


    Estimate: $400 - $800.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
