Steamboat Bill, Jr. (1928)

In director Charles "Chuck" Riesner's silent-era slapstick comedy:

  • the comical sequence in which Steamboat Bill Jr. (Buster Keaton) tried on hats and his personality changed into a new character with each one
  • the tremendous special effects of a destructive tornado/cyclone
  • the spectacular, beautifully-choreographed, extremely dangerous stunt of the front of a two-story house falling forward - its second floor window opening was perfectly positioned to fall over bewildered young Bill standing in front of the building
