SPITE MARRIAGE

United States | 1929 | Buster Keaton, Edward Sedgwick

SPITE MARRIAGE

Buster Keaton’s second film for MGM was also his last silent feature. It’s also one of his least shown and most underrated comedies. Keaton plays a pants-presser in love with a stage actress who marries him in order to spite the man she really loves, an actor who has jilted her. “Three of the sequences (a play ruined by Buster’s gaucheness, getting a drunk bride to bed, and an extraordinary shipboard fight) put the film up in Division One, crowning a decade of unparalleled creativity.” –Time Out Film Guide. Music track. 76 min.

Special admission $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8; no passes, twofers, or radio winners.
