"[T]he film is still clearly the work of a master, and the temperance of the storytelling is more than classical -- it's novelistic, favouring ambience and character over what-happens-next."

"A lot of things come down during the climax of STEAMBOAT BILL, JR., including most of the Mississippi river town (actually Sacramento) where the story is set. Struck by a cyclone, the building around Keaton collapse or are torn away, yet he remains strangely unmoved..."
In STEAMBOAT BILL, JR., Buster Keaton plays the mild-mannered son of a steamboat captain caught in the middle of the bitter rivalry between his father and another Mississippi riverboat owner. This silent classic contains the famous stunt in which a cyclone blows down a two-story wall over Keaton who passes unharmed through an open window.
