Steamboat Bill, Jr w/ live accompaniment by Philip Carli

Willard Straight Theatre
Saturday, Feb 15, 2020 at 2:00 PM (ET)

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.
