Thousands of spectators watched the movie masterpiece on Potemkin Stairs

Within the framework of Odessa Film Festival, the audience have enjoyed performance of the film "Safety Last!", which was released 95 years ago

On the second day of the 9th Odessa International Film Festival, on July 14, 2018, the screening of the film Safety Last! (1923) directed by Sam Taylor and Fred Newmayer took place on Potemkin Stairs.

In 2018 the movie "Safety Last" celebrates its 95anniversary.
The main role in the film was played by Harold Lloyd - one of the best comedians of the silent film. He starred in more than 200 short and full-length films. This year it is marked the 125th anniversary of the actor’s birth.

The film was traditionally shown on Potemkin Stairs and was accompanied by a symphony orchestra. Karl Davis’ musical composition was performed. It is based on the popular tones of 20th-century music, in particular the jazz arrangements of the Paul Whiteman Band.
The organizers of Odessa Film Festival are sure that this year the traditional film-performance is the largest open-air-show of Europe.
