Description

This sparkling comedy has Keaton as a wealthy fop who takes a high-end camping trip, meets a country girl, falls in love, and proposes marriage. When her he-man father won’t consent to a union with such a weakling, Buster masquerades as a prizefighter (who happens to share his name) to win the day.

Introduction by Leonard Maltin

Restoration by Cineteca di Bologna in collaboration with Cohen Collection.
