Some of Buster Keaton’s most elaborate stunts are in his love-sick/sea-sick oceanic tale, THE NAVIGATOR. Keaton’s character Rollo Treadway is a wealthy man whose rejected marriage proposal to neighbor Betsy O’Brien (Kathryn McGuire) doesn’t stop his desire to go on his Hawaiian honeymoon alone. As you can expect, something amiss happens…he boards the wrong boat, Besty’s father’s boat, who is being held captive on board. Betsey also boards and when the two non-lovers meet, the adventure really begins.

Featuring a live score by Reel Orchestrette, with Bradford Reed on pencilina, drums, keys & Geoff Gersh on guitar.

Screening on 35mm film!
