When a rough-and-ready captain “Steamboat” Bill Campbell (Ernest Torrence), is visited by his unknown son, Bill, Jr. (Buster Keaton), the elder Campbell takes it upon himself to make his “fussy” son seaworthy enough to earn the name “Steamboat Bill, Jr.” One of Buster Keaton’s greatest silent comedies features jaw-dropping sight gags and stunts, topped by an incredible cyclone sequence that made cinema history.
