Format: DVD
No other movie I've ever seen - with the possible exceptoin of the first Richard Pryor concert film, which isn't quite the same thing - has ever made me laugh as much, or as hard, as this. That the gags are peerlessly set up and flawlessly executed is to be expected with Keaton, and he made better films than this ("The General" comes to mind, of course) but for sheer, painful belly-laughs, none of Buster's work, for me, comes close. A few moments of many: Buster's idiot girlfriend making coffee; their eerily hilarious meeting on the drifting boat, so perfectly timed and played it should a) serve as a model for all physical comedians and b) never be done again; and Keaton's underwater duel with a swordfish. Just don't watch it while you're eating, and keep a pillow by the couch for falling on.

The Navigator -- a luxury liner set adrift with no crew apart from Buster Keaton and his would-be fiancé. After eventually finding each other aboard the giant craft, they must work together to survive. Totally cut off from civilization their needs are the most basic: they must use all their wits to survive hunger, thirst, and ghosts. Falling under the "not so basic necessities" category, they must also repel an invasion from a group of unfortunately characterized islanders.
This film clocks in at just about an hour. And like many the Keaton films of this length, this is very much a collection of related set pieces, only loosely connected by plot. Fortunately, the sequences here are very funny. The breakfast scene is quite amusing, with the two trying to prepare food in a kitchen that is well stocked in some things, but lacking in other, necessary items (i.e. lots of cans, no can-opener in sight). Naturally, as with any Buster Keaton movie, confusions abound; the hapless pair mistakes fireworks for candles, and a photograph for a poltergeist.
As with most of Keaton's better films, several elements all come together to create something worthy. The slapstick comedy is present, of course. But the action sequences are epic and give the store a real feeling of adventure.
In addition to the main feature, included on this disc are two of Buster's short films that also deal with nautical adventures. First up is THE BOAT, in which Buster Keaton, devoted father and husband has a dream of building and captaining a sailing ship of his own. He ultimately realizes his goal, but the opening scene shows us the first of what will become many miscalculations; he's constructed a boat in a basement, and doesn't realize that he has no way of fitting it through the door.

THE NAVAGATOR is one of Buster's great ones. A classic. The majority of the movie is on the boat "The Navigator". Many very funny moments and great stunts. Buster plays the spoiled rich guy who ends up as the hero saving the girl. The scene where Buster and the girl run around attempting to find each other is a classic. Ditto for Buster playing cards with a soaked deck. Many more great moments.
THE BOAT is one of Buster's best shorts. Buster, his wife and two small sons launch a boat. There are many very funny moments and great stunt work.
THE LOVE NEST is also outstanding. Most of the movie involves Buster and Big Joe Roberts on Joe's boat during Buster's dream. This was Buster's last silent short.

This DVD contains one feature and two short films, all with a oceangoing theme. "The Navigator" from 1924 was the oldest film on AFI's "100 Years, 100 Laughs" list of the 100 funniest movies. Keaton finds himself adrift on a large ocean liner with the woman he had hoped to marry as his only companion. There are several funny scenes including Keaton's reaction to drinking coffee made with seawater, mistaking fireworks for candles, Keaton's underwater duel with a swordfish, and a climax involving several dozen boxes of fireworks and a tribe of island cannibals.
"The Boat" and "The Love Nest" are the two short films, with "The Boat" being the better of the two. Keaton builds a boat called "Damfino" in his house then destroys the house trying to get the completed boat outside. When he and the family get into trouble during a storm, the boat's name is used in a very funny scene with a coast guard telegraph operator.
Overall, this is a wonderful DVD more than worthy of a four-star rating. I wish there had been a four and a half star rating since I reserve the five star ratings for true masterpieces (like Keaton's "The General").
