Steamboat Bill, Jr.

It’s hard to go wrong with Buster Keaton. I wouldn’t rank this one among his very best (Cameraman, Sherlock, General), but it’s pretty good. The first two-thirds are amusing, but it’s only the stormy climax that truly impresses. I wasn’t really in the mood for a silent comedy and I was kind of bored at first, but the dynamite ending definitely perked me up. Rating: 8
