Steamboat Bill Jr. Regie Buster Keaton, Charles Reisner
This was the first Keaton film I ever saw, and I immediately became a fan. (The director is credited as Charles Reisner, but we all know that Keaton was primarily responsible for the direction of his films of this period.) It’s not as good as The General (what is?), but it beats out The Cameraman, Keaton’s other feature of this year, by a nose.

A charmer. Its narrative doesn’t cohere as well as Buster’s very—check out Sherlock Jr. and The Cameraman—feeling a bit too much like a string of gags in search of a forward momentum. Bonus star for the final string of wild mayhem, which is a corker. Sidenote: my god, this red state/blue state divide has been with us forever.

To watch this film is to watch a man repeatedly throw himself into peril for the sake of comedy cinema, and perhaps there’s an increased sense of urgency to this performance with the knowledge that [Keaton] would never enjoy such freedom again.
