About the Movie

Harold Lloyd’s biggest box-office hit was this silent comedy gem, 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. This crowd-pleaser 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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: This is a regular Harold Lloyd strip of fun, which is made all the more hilarious by introducing something like suspense in the sequences on the football field. – Mordaunt Hall, New York Times, Aug 22, 2016

Fresh: Mr. Lloyd could be funny playing an undisturbed mummy. Simply this: The Freshman is not so funny as earlier of the comedian's adventures. – TIME Magazine, Sep 8, 2010

Fresh: Lloyd can't compete with Chaplin and Keaton, but he perfectly embodied the can-do energy of the 1920s, and few things are quite as funny as his bespectacled, apple-pie face twisted by a panic that was always justified. – J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, Sep 8, 2010

Fresh: Lloyd's films are prose where Keaton's were poems, but gag for gag, Lloyd was the funniest screen comic of his time. – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Sep 8, 2010
