Steamboat Bill Jr @ The Film Forum

  • Film Forum 209 West Houston St. New York, NY 10014 (map)

(1928) Ukulele-playing collegiate twit Buster Keaton is a big disappointment to gruff sea-faring dad Ernest Torrence, until…The big cyclone finale is “surely one of the most fantastic dithyrambs of disaster ever committed to film” (Rudi Blesh). Selected for this year’s National Film Registry as a film of cultural, historic and aesthetic importance. And it’s also one of Buster’s funniest movies!  Archival 35mm print courtesy Library of Congress. Approx. 70 mins.
