Even though I'm a huge fan of Charlie Chaplin (I basically grew up with the guy), I must confess, I have always been kind of oblivious about Buster Keaton. Indeed, so far I only saw 'The General' which didn't really blow me away (but I definitely need to re-watch it though). Anyway, this was my second movie starring Keaton and I really enjoyed it. Basically, the plot was some kind of typical 'Rome... read more

Steamboat Bill is excited that his son (Steamboat Bill Jr.) is coming to visit him. When he does, he tries to turn him into a proper person for working on the boats, while his son resists. Meanwhile, Kitty, a girl that he knows from school in Boston, spots him and introduces him to her father, a rival of Steamboat Bill. He tries to be alone with her, but gets caught several times, and is given a ticket back to Boston. Steamboat Bill gets arrested for unruly conduct (on a condemnation notice of his boat) and it's up to Bill Jr. to rescue his dad - in the middle of a cyclone storm

"Buster Keaton is another pinnacle of silent comedy. His most famous film is probably The General, and, to be fair, that is probably a much better movie. But again, this one just makes me laugh more. Particularly the big storm sequence by way of the climax, where some of the physical stunts have me close to rolling on the floor! There's also a great in-joke early on where Buster's trying on hats, and quickly rejects and throws away his trademark porkpie cap. And of course, it has all the Buster K"
