The Cameraman

  • Dir: Edward Sedgwick

  • USA, 1928, Silent, 68mins, DCP

  • Cast: Buster Keaton, Marceline Day, Harold Goodwin

In his first feature at MGM, Keaton is on fine form, though he would later regret his move, as the studio wrestled his creative control away. After falling in love with a beautiful newsreel secretary, our hero gets a job as a cameraman, leading to all manners of hilarious hijinks, including a perilous trip to New York’s Chinatown, where he becomes embroiled in a violent Tong War. Beautifully restored to its former glory, this is an unmissable opportunity to experience a late masterpiece from “The Great Stone Face” on the big screen.
