Rival Romeos: This film Directed by Walt Disney was initially released in 1928. Oswald is off to see his sweetheart when he is passed by a rival in a faster car. He takes the lead, though, when both drivers encounter a mud puddle; Oswald isn’t afraid to get a little dirty, while his competitor is.
The Freshman: This 1925 film stars Harold Lloyd, Jobyna Ralston, Brooks Benedict and James H. Anderson. It remains one of Lloyd’s biggest box-office hit and enduring film. The film features a nerdy college student “Speedy” who dreams to go to college and become the most popular student on campus. To be the most popular student, he will have to outdo the current most popular
student, football captain Chet Trask. Unaware Speedy’s task is made all the more difficult when one of the upperclassmen, seeing how hard Speedy is trying to impress, does whatever he can to make Speedy look all the more ridiculous.
