A film by Edward Sedgwick and Buster Keaton
Starring Buster Keaton, Marceline Day and Harold Goodwin
A Buster Keaton classic. In love with a woman working at MGM Studios, a man becomes a cameraman to get close to her. Clumsy and new to filming, he continuously makes a fool of himself in various situations.
The Cameraman was Buster Keaton’s first film for MGM Studios and made while he was still at the height of his career. Buster plays a sidewalk tintype portrait photographer who develops a crush on Sally (Marceline Day), an MGM secretary. In order to be near her, he uses all of his savings to purchase an old film camera and tries to get a job as one of MGM’s cameramen. Despite his complete lack of ability and experience, Sally encourages Buster to film everything he can and a wild series of comedic mishaps ensues. From a dazed monkey to a war in Chinatown and a boat race gone wrong, The Cameraman delivers a classic, unforgettable Buster Keaton performance.
In 2005, this film, once thought lost but rediscovered in Paris in 1968, was added to the Library of Congress National Film Registry having been deemed “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant.”
