“Love is the unchanging axis on which the world revolves”

This is the first feature-length film to be directed by and star Buster Keaton – his previous films all being shorts. Set over three different historical eras; the Stone Age, Roman times and 1920s New York. In all of these periods Keaton stars as a young man, The Boy, striving for the attention of a beautiful lady, The Girl, (Margaret Leahy) against a bigger, stronger and richer suitor, The Villain (Wallace Beery). A parody of D.W. Griffith’s 1916 screen masterpiece INTOLERANCE, the comedy lies in watching the same story unfold again and again over different periods in history.

As Aardman Animation’s latest feature, the pre-historic Early Man (2018) hits cinema screens we are delighted to welcome their Director and co-founder Peter Lord who joins us to introduce the stone age Keaton in this rarely screened Keaton comedy. With live piano accompaniment by Daan Van den Hurk.
