CAMERAMAN, THE (1928)
Tickets $10 for children 12 and under
The "Great Stone Face" Buster Keaton portrays a "tintype" portrait photographer who decides to sign to the newsreel department in hopes of impressing beautiful Marceline Day, a secretary for MGM's newsreel department. However, his hand with a movie camera is not especially sure. He mistakenly double-exposes a reel of film that results in battleships sailing down Broadway. His attempts to get footage of a Tong battle seem more successful until an organ grinder's monkey runs off with his film. Keaton gets the axe before long, but he's not about to give up, and he tries to find another way to impress his lady love. DIR Edward Sedgwick; DIR/PROD Buster Keaton; SCR Clyde Bruckman, Lew Lipton; PROD Lawrence Weingarten. U.S., 1928, b&w, 75 min. NOT RATED
