The musicians of The Lucky Dog Picturehouse return with a brand new score composed to celebrate the centenary of Girl Shy - one of the finest and funniest creations from silent-screen legend Harold Lloyd.

Timid tailor's apprentice Harold Meadows (Lloyd) can hardly look at a woman without blushing; he is hopeless in every encounter. Despite this, Harold is the author of The Secret of Making Love, a manuscript purportedly penned by a confident Casanova. When he heads to the big city in search of a publisher, Meadows finally meets a girl who he thinks might be The One - but which man does he want to be?

Girl Shy was an instant hit in 1924, with one of the most breathtaking chase scenes in cinematic history, described by Variety as 'beyond the mere power of a typewriter to describe […] it caps anything else that has ever been done on screen' - and even inspired the famous chariot race in Ben-Hur. Girl Shy remains a firm favourite one hundred years on.

'The Lucky Dog Picturehouse mix a lip-smacking cocktail of classic silent movies and zesty new live music, garnished by their own delight in entertaining and educating an audience' Nicholas Barber, Film Critic, BBC Culture
