“The Freshman” (1925) is Harry Lloyd’s biggest hit in silent film cinema, where he stars as a new college student – dreaming of being the football-playing big man on campus. In a somewhat predictable fashion, his plans inevitably go awry. He ultimately proves his worth in one of the most famous sports sequences ever filmed, a crowd-pleasing showcase of Lloyd’s slapstick brilliance and charm. His antics are not lost on his love interest, Peggy. Harold’s love for her provides him with a clearer understanding of who he truly is. Also screening is Lloyd’s short “Just Neighbors” (1919), a film about two neighbors’ hilarious failed attempt to build a shed.

Running time: “The Freshman” (1925), 76 minutes. “Just Neighbors” (1919), 14 minutes.

Total running time: 90 minutes.
