Buster Keaton’s Silent Film “The Cameraman,” film & Chautauqua discussion

Chautauqua History Alive presents a screening and discussion of Buster Keaton’s Silent Film “The Cameraman.” Saturday February 28 at 2:00pm at Greenville Technical College, Barton Campus. Free. Buster Keaton was a brilliant comedian, and “The Cameraman” made during the end of the silent era is among his best. Here, Buster is cast as an aspiring, but lousy, newsreel cameraman, in quest of the perfect shot and of course, the requisite pretty but oblivious Keaton ingenue. It’s hilarious but also rather melodramatic and touching.
