In this silent film, two members of the idle rich have to move fast when they're stranded on an abandoned luxury liner.

DirDonald Crisp CastBuster Keaton , Kathryn McGuire , Frederick Vroom .

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Buster Keaton, Donald Crisp. Buster Keaton, Kathryn McGuire, Frederick Vroom.

"Buster plays (yet again) a pampered millionaire who--by sheer circumstance, with a dash of stupidity--winds up on a huge, deserted ship with the woman he wants to marry. Many great gags and amusing sequences, but this silent doesn't have the momentum of Buster's best comedies."

In this silent film, a movie projectionist dreams himself into a mystery movie.

DirBuster Keaton CastBuster Keaton , Kathryn McGuire , Ward Crane .

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Buster Keaton. Buster Keaton, Kathryn McGuire, Ward Crane, Joseph Keaton, Erwin Connolly. "Keaton reached his pinnacle with this brilliant and hilarious story of a hapless projectionist who walks right into the screen and takes part in the imaginary detective drama unfolding. Sublime study of film and fantasy, which has undoubtedly influenced countless filmmakers such as Woody Allen, Jacques Rivette, even Bunuel."
