Charles Reisner, Buster Keaton
GENRE:
Comedy, Drama
Original TFD Introduction by Dana Hersey. Buster Keaton plays the son of a steamboat captain in this classic comedy from the silent era. Regarded by many as one of Keaton’s best, he not only turns in a fine acting job as an effete young man trying to show his worth, but he also creates some of the greatest action sequences in the history of the movies. Our only advice is that you wait for the hurricane scene, and keep an eye on the falling building! Also starring Tom McGuire and Marion Byron, this production will have you rooting for Buster to save the day! (BW)
