Maestros de la Comedia – I / Harold Lloyd [Speedy, 1928] – Mortimer Brewster

Maestros de la Comedia – I / Harold Lloyd [Speedy, 1928] – Mortimer Brewster

 

 

Dedicado a mi padre, quien no sólo es un gran admirador de Harold Lloyd, Buster Keaton, Charles Chaplin y los Hermanos Marx, sino que fue quien me enseñó a sentir la belleza de ese invento llamado «cine» y a disfrutar con las locuras de esos enormes cómicos tan sensibles e inteligentes.

 

Harold Lloyd

 

Harold Clayton Lloyd [20 Abril 1893, Burchard, Nebraska – 8 Marzo 1971, Beverly Hills, California]

 

Speedy

 

La secuencia pertenece a la película Speedy, dirigida por Ted Wilde en 1928 y protagonizada por Harold Clayton Lloyd, más conocido como «Harold Lloyd». La trama de la película gira en torno a los intentos de un taxista, “Speedy”, por salvar el último tranvía tirado por caballos en Nueva York.

En la secuencia, “Speedy” lleva en su taxi, entre otros, a Babe Ruth, la estrella de los New York Yankees, que participó en la película interpretándose a sí mismo. “Speedy” transporta a Ruth hasta el Yankee Stadium en una alocada carrera.

Para los fans de la arquitectura neoyorquina (entre los que me encuentro), en la secuencia se pueden ver el New York Herald Building, diseñado pos Stanford White, atravésandolo el célebre tren elevado – el «El»-, el Macombs Dam Bridge, el Yankee Stadium, el arco de Washington Square (la plaza que sirve de escenario a la novela homónima de Henry James y en la que empezó su andadura musical un jovencísimo Robert Zimmerman, Bob Dylan, cuyo apellido artístico es su particular homenaje al poeta galés Dylan Thomas, cuyas últimas palabras, antes de fallecer en la ciudad de Nueva York el 9 de Noviembre de 1953, al parecer fueron éstas: “I’ve had 18 straight whiskies; I think that’s the record.”), el actual Museum of the American Indian, Bowling Green, parte del Brooklyn Bridge, el demolido New York Produce Exchange Building, y la estatua de Abraham De Peyster.

En la película también hace un cameo Lou Gehrig, otra estrella del béisbol (cuyo nombre está asociado tristemente, además, a la ELA, la esclerosis lateral amiotrófica).

 

Harold Lloyd en apuros.

 

Cuatro meses antes de fallecer, Harold Lloyd dijo  lo siguiente:

«My humor was never cruel or cynical. I just took life and poked fun at it. We made it so it could be understood the world over, without language barriers. We seem to have conquered the time barrier, too.»

Desde luego.

Mortimer Brewster

    Fantastic blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or
    go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
