Summary
The cameraman: "Keaton plays a tintype street photographer who tries his hand as a freelance newsreel cameraman in order to win the affection of a girl who works at a newsreel company." -- Container. Spite marriage: "A jilted actress pops the question to hapless admirer Keaton. The result is a marriage made in comedy heaven, filled with pursuits, rescues and slapstick. The landmark routine of putting the inebriated bride to bed became a staple of Keaton's 1950s live shows." -- Container. Free and easy: "Keaton departs Kansas with the newly crowned Miss Gopher City and heads for Hollywood determined to turn her into a star... [Keaton's] first talkie." -- Container
