Steamboat Bill, Jr. (1928)
Foppish college boy Buster Keaton returns home to visit his riverboat captain father who disapproves of Keaton's effete ways, in this silent comedy. Dad tries to teach his reluctant son the business, but matters really come to a head when Keaton falls for the daughter of his father's arch rival, his dad gets arrested, and a hurricane approaches. Classic Keaton gags abound, including the famous falling housefront scene. Ernest Torrence and Marion Byron co-star. 70 min. Standard; Soundtrack: mono music score; bonus shorts "Convict 13" (1920) and "Daydreams" (1922). Silent with music score.
