Into Film Clubs
Into Film Clubs provide opportunities to watch, review and make films.
This silent comedy stars Buster Keaton as the son of a steamboat Captain who comes home after years away. The father tries to teach Junior his trade without much luck - and Junior also discovers that the girl he's got his eye on is the daughter of his dad's bitter rival. Matters come to a head during a huge storm, where Keaton pulls off one of cinema's most memorable stunts - the entire front wall of a house falls down around him, but he survives because he's standing exactly where the open window is.
He might not be as famous as his contemporaries Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, but Harold Lloyd was still the clown prince of silent slapstick.
