Buster Keaton must be appreciated with patience and the right attitude, because he requires viewers to take time and follow his stories, the rhythm of his scens and acting performances, the effects of his face expressions and body language that are apparently minimal until they suddenly produce something unexpected and crazy or slowly develop into a joke and action that can be understood only when it is fully accomplished. It is a super modern and refined cinema and comical strategy that tells a lot about modern age and a philosophical view of life and history, the alineation of man and his struggle against destiny, prejudice, society, community. But it is also a talent that explodes into incredible and liberating scenes where he makes impossible things possible, like in the most famous of this film, that is constantly regarded as one of the best in cinema history: the falling house scene, something made with no special fx and just a perfect coordination between his body, on stage effects and camera/editing settings. An amazing work of art

The Elstree Hill Entertainment version of Buster Keaton's Steamboat Bill Jr has no extras whatsoever. Contrary to Amazon's description it does NOT include the short film "The Boat".

Yes this film is a must. The ending was cut short which was a disappointment but it didn't distract from the excellent stunts.

You may argue that this is not Buster Keaton's best. However, it contains one of the most daring and dangerous scenes in cinema history. During the typhoon scene toward the end of the film, Keaton stands in the exact spot where the front of a house will fall, so that Keaton is standing in the gap of a window frame when it does. With no CGI, this stunt is performed by Keaton himself. Not many people will risk their lives for a comedy sketch.

Not much you can say, it's Steamboat Bill Jr. .. it's almost as funny as _The General_, hence, pretty much the second funniest film ever made! Enjoy. BluRay is perfect, a great rendition.
