Film Classics in 35mm! Jeff Rapsis accompanies
United States | 1928 | Buster Keaton, Edward Sedgwick
New England’s foremost silent film accompanist, Jeff Rapsis, returns to the Cinematheque to accompany the first comedy Buster Keaton made for MGM near the end of the silent era. (It’s one of his funniest movies.) Buster plays a lovestruck Hollywood newsreel cameraman who must contend with both a local tong war and a precocious organ grinder’s monkey before getting the girl. 69 min.
Special admission $12; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $9; no passes, twofers, or radio winners. Keaton’s second film for MGM, and his last silent feature, shows on 3/11 & 12.
