''Speedy'' director Ted Wilde was nominated for Best Comedy Direction at the first AcademyAward ceremony. The award was never given again. The EndOfAnAge plot with Pop's horse-drawn car turned out to be appropriate on a meta level, as ''Speedy'' was the last silent film Harold Lloyd ever made.

* ThrowItIn: The scene where Harold plows into an elevated rail pillar was not scripted. They proceeded to write it into the story, having Harold improvise by using a manhole cover in place of a busted wheel.

* FlippingTheBird: Harold leans against a fence with a "wet paint" sign on it, and ruins his suit. He discovers this after seeing his reflection in a mirror. In the most surprising scene in the movie, he then flips the bird to his own reflection. This happened in 1928.
