Harold Lloyd in THE FRESHMAN (1925) -  with Jobyna Ralston, Brooks Benedict and James Anderson; directed by by Fred C. Newmeyer and Sam Taylor; released September 1925 by Pathé Exchange. 76 mins. Courtesy Harold Lloyd Entertainment. 

Live accompaniment by Ben Model

Harold Lloyd plays a college-bound small-town young man who's caught up in the all the fads and trends of campus life he's seen in movies. Duped into thinking he is the new college hero and star player on the football team, reality sinks in on the eve of the championship game. The love of his college sweetheart and pure determination leads to one of the funniest football games ever filmed. One of Lloyd's own personal favorites!

Ben Model, curator of the silent films series, is one of the nation's leading silent film accompanists, performing on both piano and theatre organ. Over the past 30+ years he has created and performed several hundred live scores for silent films on piano and theatre organ, for films lasting anywhere from one minute to five hours. Ben is a resident film accompanist at the Museum of Modern Art (NY) and at the Library of Congress' Packard Campus Theatre. His recorded scores can be heard on numerous DVD/Blu-Ray releases, on TCM and on his YouTube channel.  Ben is a regular accompanist at classic film festivals around the U.S.A. and in Norway, and performs at universities, museums, and historic theaters. Ben is the producer and co-founder of The Silent Clowns Film Series, now in its 17th season in NYC. Ben's composed ensemble scores for films by Chaplin and Keaton are performed around the U.S. every year by orchestras and by concert bands. Ben has co-curated a number of film series for MoMA, and also programmed two recent DVD box sets of Ernie Kovacs television shows.
