The Cameraman (1928)

A photographer takes up newsreel shooting to impress a secretary.

As a big fan of Buster Keaton's "The General", "Sherlock Jr." and "One Week" I really looked forward to this one, but was, alas, sadly dissapointed. The first 3/4 of this movie was slow and the jokes did not work. The last 1/4 was very good however and made the whole experience worthwhile.
