The cameraman

 LIVE PERFORMANCE BY JULIAN FERRARETTO

One of the heroes of physical comedy in the silent film era, Buster Keaton plays a sidewalk tintype portrait photographer. After hopelessly falling in love with a woman who works at MGM studios, the clumsy protagonist spends his life savings on a moving picture camera and pretends to be a cameraman to be close to the woman he desires.
