Set on the Mississippi River in the old sidewheeler days, Steamboat Bill Jr. follows the adventures of a spoiled young man who is forced by his crusty father to learn the ropes of river-boating. Soon, his attempts expand into disaster…

MUBI's take

Buster at his peak! One of the most beloved, iconic comedies in a career full of them, Steamboat Bill Jr. was Buster Keaton’s last independent production before joining MGM, and contains some of the slapstick master’s most elaborate set-pieces. Silent comedy neophytes, step right up!
