The Navigator
The Navigator (1924) dir. Buster Keaton and Donald Crisp

The Navigator has a bit of a Frat Pack plot.  Our hapless protagonist wins over the initially disinterested woman by goofing around.  We like him because he is a doofus, but a good-hearted one.  He stumbles into accidental heroism, and we cheer as he holds his supermodel bride in his arms.

Thankfully, Keaton did his humor long enough ago that we can share his work freely.



The Navigator is #375 on the 2011 edition of the TSPDT 1,000 list I’m blogging through.  I’ve now seen 418.
