"The Frozen North" is a short comedy, starring Buster Keaton and featuring Joe Roberts, a star of Silent Hall of Fame.
Here is what you should know in order to enjoy this film to the fullest:
- this is the only film of Buster Keaton, where he plays a bad guy, so we don't sympathize with him as usual
- this is as much a comedy, as it is a surrealistic parody: Buster Keaton takes digs at two of his contemporary directors (more about this at Silent Hall of Fame)
- a few minutes of the footage are missing, which does not help to follow the continuity, if any
- the quality of the print is not great compared to the other high-resolution films of Buster Keaton that we stream, so you should lower your expectations.
