1928, 70 minutes, Directed by Charles Reisner and Buster Keaton

Saturday, January 13th, 2018 at 3:00pm

The last of the independent features made in the prime of Buster Keaton's career, Steamboat Bill Jr. is a large-scale follow-up to The General, substituting a Mississippi paddlewheel for the locomotive, and replacing the spectacle of the Civil War with a catastrophic hurricane. Keaton stars as William Canfield Jr., a Boston collegian who returns to his deep-southern roots to reunite with his father, a crusty riverboat captain (Ernest Torrence), who is engaged in a bitter rivalry with a riverboat king, coincidentally, the father of Willie's sweetheart (Marion Byron). Suggested for children age 8 and older.
