“Good laugh picture with Buster Keaton” Variety

Keaton’s last great film has him playing a New York street photographer with ambitions to be an MGM newsreel cameraman and win the heart of Sally, who is of course in love with someone else. With some of his most wonderful comic moments, and aided by his monkey side-kick, this is the film that finally wrecked his career. With live music from Terry Davies.
