“Captain Green is the perfect proponent of the Louisiana music tradition… They use jazz as a launching pad to get to space, and, boy, do they ever get there!” - Scott Hopkins

Hailed as a standout achievement in comedy of the silent era of film, it includes one of Keaton’s most iconic set pieces and comedic moments (including being chased through Los Angeles by both boulders and hopeful brides-to-be.
