This classic Keaton comedy about a small-time photographer who suffers disaster after disaster when he tries to film newsreels to impress a girl is full of hilarious gags - and an organ-grinders monkey that saves the day! The greatest of the silent comics, Keaton is often remembered for his deadpan face in response to the tricks of malignant fate. He was a profound comic genius with a bleak, absurdist vision of the world, whose artistry and humour remain timeless.
