Steamboat Bill, Jr. is a silent comedy from 1928 directed by Charles Reisner. William Canfield, Jr. (Buster Keaton) is a college graduate who is also the son of a tough old sea-captain, William "Steamboat Bill" Canfield (Ernest Torrence). Steamboat Bill wants nothing more than to toughen up his son and turn him into a seafaring man, but William wants nothing of the sort. Steamboat Bill also has an ongoing feud with the owner of a fancy ferryboat, Tom Carter (Tom McQuire). Tom is the father of a pretty girl, Mary King (Marion Bryon), who William takes a liking to. Whenever Steamboat Bill takes a break from trying to turn Willie into a man, Willie seeks out Mary and tries to get her alone. In a crazy turn of events, Steamboat Bill is arrested for assaulting Tom. Willie tries to break his father out of jail, but gets injured and put in the hospital. When a cyclone hits town, Willie's manhood is put to the test when it's up to him to rescue Mary, Tom and his father from the dangerous winds that are toppling over buildings and uprooting trees.moreless
