STEAMBOAT BILL, JR. (1928)
Vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Buster Keaton, Tom McGuire, Ernest Torrence, Tom Lewis, Marion Byron, dir: Charles Reisner, Buster Keaton; United Artists. Effete William Canfield goes to meet his cantankerous father (who left him as a child) to assist him in running his riverboat. He ends up saving everyone when a fierce storm hits. A Buster Keaton production, it gave him ample opportunity to stage many wonderful physical gags. Buster performed what many would consider insane stunts.
Here he is with Ernest Torrence as his father juggling a variety of hats. There is a pinhole in each of the four corners and some emulsion loss at the blank white margin corners where the pins once were. There are remnants of tape reinforcement on the verso four corners. NEAR FINE.
