Steamboat Bill, Jr. (1928)<h4> Sunday Family Films</h4>

Our Sunday Family Films series begins with a silent-era classic live-scored by Notre Dame student Alex Mansour on piano. Willie Canfield, Jr. (Buster Keaton) returns home from college and reunites with his steamboat captaining father in a Mississippi River town. Apart for many years, Canfield père is shocked by his son’s fancified appearance, which is suited for a library and not a steamboat. Still, the elder Canfield is happy to have found an ally to help him compete with fellow riverboat owner John James King (Tom McGuire). Willie finds himself falling for King's daughter, Mary (Marion Byron), but he has more pressing concerns when the winds of fortune shift and his father is arrested, leading to Keaton doing an array of Keaton-esque stunts.

Free for children 12 and under.
