Steamboat Bill, Jr.
7:00 pm • For tickets, call 970-482-4823
|The Fort Collins Symphony presents Buster Keaton's silent film Steamboat Bill Jr with accompaniment by the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra! Tough riverboat captain Steamboat Bill (Ernest Torrance) meets his long-lost son, who turns out to be college dandy Buster Keaton. Buster is a disappointment until a hurricane gives him a chance to prove his mettle. Wonderful comedy set pieces and an amazing stunt-filled finale make this a wildly entertaining comedy. Mont Alto's score is rich in Americana, from classic ragtime and spirituals to 1920s jazz and silent film music.|
