The genius of Buster Keaton is on full display in this wonderful comedy about the business of movie making. The film follows Keaton, a sidewalk portrait photographer, as he tries to break into the newsreels to woo the girl of his dreams. Keaton famously did his own stunts and The Cameraman is a showcase for his physical virtuosity as well as an enchantingly goofy love story.

Accompanied by the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra.

Introduced by Frank Buxton and Leonard Maltin
