Event Details

Buster Keaton plays a hapless college boy trying to win the affection of his tough, steamboat owning father, as well as the heart of the daughter of a rival steamboat owner, in this comic gem. The film resolves its mishap-ridden plot with the appearance of a slightly magical cyclone: one can see in Keaton's commitment to the winds and eddys of the disaster finale the making of a legendary masterpiece. Shown in a new digital restoration.

The film will be accompanied by Dr. Philip Carli.
