This is the fifth "Flawed Family Video" we have added to the collection. We hope that it will give a new life to a great old movie. Buster is caught in "The Big Storm" in this short remake of scenes from Steamboat Bill Junior.......Special Editors Note: we have created "Flawed Family Flicks" as a fun way to rekindle new interest in some great old movies. These remixes were originally created for my grandchildren, and it now appears many other folks enjoy them as well. These Movies are great classics in there own rights and don't need any help from us. Our remixes are often drastically shortened and heavily altered from the original versions. You should always be able to find the original full length version of these films within the Archive somewhere. We hope you will enjoy both our version and the original version the artist and director meant you to see. We salute the original great artists, directors, film crews and studios that pioneered what we see in entertainment today. Thanks for watching!

Kudos for this! Always been a Buster Keaton fan and while this isn't a "pure" Buster film its quite entertaining. Worth a watch for sure. Thank you to all involved for this.

hEY, hE GOT US WATCHING
He got us watching Buster again didnt he? No harm done. Thanks. The Voice reminds me as a Kid, My brothers freind Joe Nix Would turn the sound off the tv when we should have been Asleep in Bed, and add lib the voices and Dialoge and Have me in stiches. He was as funny as Johnathon Winters to this little 10 year old Kid.

People just love Buster!
Buster is great in this heavily edited film version of Steamboat Bill Jr. It has the standard "Flawed Family" Music, sound effects and narration. A nice remix of a great movie.

A great film lives again.
This is an old Buster Keaton silent movie with a music and voice soundtrack added. I found this funny, but not as good as Flawed Families "The Boat" that is in the Archive. I also wanted to mention that for those folks who find themselves being "irritated" while listening to the video I recommend a hi tech fix. Just turn off the sound and bing, its a silent movie again. Better yet, take the producers advice and watch the original film that is here in the Archive. I just wish Flawed Family Flicks would do more reedit videos. I noticed they stopped doing reedits like this one 6 months ago. I miss them!

sorry.. not for me...
I was quite irritated while watching it. The voice and the music is quite irritating. I like watching silent movies because of their special atmosphere that they have. Adding music and a squeaking voice has destroyed everything of this.
There maybe some how like it, yet I don't.

Happy to see Buster Back!
I have been waiting for Flawed Flicks to bring back Buster again. This is the best parts of the film "Steamboat Bill Jr." set to funny music with a comic soundtrack - Very Funny! Worth a MPEG-2 download, just like all the other Flawed Family Flicks.
