Buster Keaton is at the peak of his slapstick powers in ‘The Cameraman’. Keaton plays a hapless newsreel cameraman desperate to impress his new employer and his winsome office crush as he zigzags up and down Manhattan hustling for a scoop.
“The Cameraman is an iconic film…[and Keaton is] one of the greatest clowns in movie history.” (Time Out)
‘The Cameraman’ is the first film the silent-screen legend made after signing with MGM and his last great masterpiece. The final work over which he maintained creative control, this clever farce is the culmination of an extraordinary, decade-long run that produced some of the most innovative and enduring comedies of all time.
The film is screened from a high-definition restoration.
