Reading about the old myth of the camera being a 'magic box' that insures the perfect results; this silent movie toys with the notion, providing some amusement along the way....
Here Buster Keaton helplessly struggles with his tripod and equipment knocking out windows and doors, never managing to take a decent picture.... Until he gets some footage of the Tong war; by accident because his pet monkey winds the film on for him.
And here's the end clip just so you know what I'm on about!
I hope it amused you. E x
