Buster Keaton falls in love with Sally, the receptionist at the MGM newsreel department. Determined to impress her, he applies for a job shooting live news with his rickety hand-cranked camera. With top-drawer slapstick comedy and a beautifully acted love story at its centre, The Cameraman is the last of Keaton's great comedies and, with Sherlock Jr, one of his love letters to the joy and mystery of film making.
