the Scribe

Keaton in his element on the construction site of a new skyscraper in Toronto, it’s a hazardous place, he’s a newspaper reporter getting the story.

A beautifully-filmed masterpiece conveying sixteen points to observe under the circumstances.

A job of work for Construction Safety Associations of Ontario.

The director, it must be assumed, lets his star govern the gags and their timing, a fresh eye and color cinematography are seamlessly applied to these with a sublime result only comparable to Potterton’s The Railrodder.
