BUSTER KEATON | The Frozen North and The Boat
CHARLIE CHAPLIN | Shoulder Arms
It’s an evening of Silent Film giants! Buster Keaton plays a bumbling villain who ends up in The Frozen North. From the frozen snow to the rising water, Keaton’s The Boat finds him and his family on a voyage in his homemade boat that proves to be one disaster after another. In Charlie Chaplin’s Shoulder Arms, it’s WWI, and Chaplin is recruited to the army’s “awkward squad”.
“Silent Film Night: Buster Keaton’s The Frozen North & The Boat Charlie Chaplin’s Shoulder Arms” is presented by Anchorage Symphony Orchestra.
