Buster Keaton, Marceline Day, Harold Goodwin
Directed by Edward Sedgwick and Buster Keaton
Black and White; Not Rated; 69 minutes; 1928
The improbable world of Buster Keaton is displayed with all its manic energy. Buster acquires a hopelessly outdated movie camera, and expects to make a living as a news cameraman in Manhattan. His enthusiasm leads to wild adventures in movie-news gathering, but his absentmindedness always dooms him to failure.
