Union County Arts Center – Juan Cardona accompanies “Steamboat Bill Jr ” at the 2/7 Wurlitzer

GSTOS presents Buster Keaton in Steamboat Bill Jr (1928) with live organ accompaniment by Juan Cardona, Jr playing the 2/7 Wurlitzer Model E-X: “The Biggest Little Wurlitzer”. Co-produced with Union County Performing Arts Center.
The 35mm film print is being provided by the Library of Congress.
A steamboat captain receives a telegram informing him that his son who he has not seen for many years will be coming to visit. Eagerly expecting a strapping young lad who will help him compete with his arch-rival, he is disappointed with the effete progeny that instead shows up. Best remembered for its climactic cyclone sequence in which Keaton performs a number of death-defying stunts whilst an entire town is destroyed around him, STEAMBOAT BILL JR. was Buster Keaton’s last independent silent comedy and also one of his finest.
Format – 35mm
Running Time – 71 mins
