Harold Lloyd gets kittenish in The Freshman.

Harold Lloyd’s (Safety Last!) biggest box-office hit was the 1925 silent comedy classic The Freshman, featuring the befuddled everyman at his eager best as a new college student.

Though he dreams of being a big man on campus, the freshman’s careful plans inevitably go hilariously awry, be it on the football field or at the Fall Frolic. But he gets a climactic chance to prove his mettle—and impress the sweet girl he loves—in one of the most famous sports sequences ever filmed.

The popular, crowd-pleasing movie directed by Fred C. Newmeyer and Sam Taylor is a gleeful showcase for Lloyd’s slapstick brilliance and incandescent charm, and it’s accompanied here by a new orchestral score by Carl Davis (Napoleon).
