Buster Keaton’s last, great silent film is an unusual story about a tintype portrait photographer who becomes a newsreel cameraman to win the girl of his dreams. Our hapless hero tries to prove himself in several memorable sequences of Keatonesque knockabout comedy (including a Chinatown street battle). There are also a couple of grace notes, such as a scene set in Yankee Stadium in which a solo Keaton exquisitely mimes the moves and attitudes of a pitcher. D: Edgar Sedgwick & Buster Keaton, US, 1928, 76m
