1924: American comedian Buster Keaton (1895-1966) wearing a deep-sea diver suit with his trademark hat perched on top in a scene from his latest film 'The Navigator'.
The 1924 silent film, “The Navigator,” starring Buster Keaton will be screened at the Town Hall Theatre on Sunday at 4:30 p.m.
“The Navigator” follows the adventures of wealthy nitwit Rollo Treadway (Keaton) and his pampered girlfriend, who find themselves adrift alone on a massive ocean liner, creating classic comedy in the process.
Filmed at sea on a real ocean liner, Keaton turned the ship into the largest prop in comedy history.
The program, which concludes a summer season of silent films set at sea, will be accompanied by live music performed by Jeff Rapsis.
Admission is free with a suggested donation of $5.
