Cool Driving Around New York City 1928 Entertaining Video

Thought you all might enjoy watching this one.

Lots of neat old cars, trucks, & busses, plus a horse drawn trolley run amok and crashed into a pole in 1928 New York City.

Very Entertaining !

Thats crazzzy. Harold Lloyd was one of the best. I remember watching his movies when I was a kid, and Im only 43.

Turner Classic Movies (TMC) has Harold Lloyd videos on from time to time on the TV. I watch when I am lucky enough to catch them. Very enjoyable.

That movie is one of my favorites too -- Speedy (this is a link), 1928, Harold Lloyd.

A bit of trivia -- the scene where he crashes the trolley into the post wasn't supposed to happen. It was a real accident, but it fit the movie so well, they left it in.

Yes, that's really Babe Ruth riding in the cab. When they get to Yankee Stadium, for just a second, there's someone walking by on the sidewalk who looks directly into the camera through the cab. That person is Lou Gehrig.
