Silent Film with Live Musical Accompaniment by the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra
Experience this silent feature film in true 1920s fashion accompanied by the musical talents of a live orchestra. In this 1928 classic, Willie Canfield Jr. (Buster Keaton) reunites with his boat captain father in a Mississippi River town. Though he’s flummoxed by Willie’s citified appearance, the elder Canfield seems to have found an ally to help him compete with fellow riverboat owner John James King (Tom McGuire). Willie finds himself falling for King’s daughter, Mary (Marion Byron), but he has more pressing concerns when the weather turns bad and his father is arrested.
1928, 1 hour 10 minutes
