THE NAVIGATOR with Buster Keaton!
Well, Busters really done it this time: after suffering a rejected marriage proposal, Keaton here as spoiled playboy Rollo Treadway embarks on a solo honeymoon trip to Honolulu, only to find himself adrift on a helmless ship without a steward in sight.
Up against swordfish, a ravenous octopus, and an island of cannibals, a newly self-reliant Keaton battles the seas, all while protecting the girl of his dreams and remaining as stoic as ever. Some of Keatons most memorable stunts can be seen here, including a hilarious deep-sea dive!
According to the New York Times in 1924, "The Navigator is an excellent panacea for melancholia or lethargy, as it is filled with ludicrous and intensely humorous situations or, in other words, its the perfect Silent Sundays season closer and a great family outing!
