The most innovative and expressive silent comedic actor in history, Buster Keaton’s genius still sparkles today. Here in The Balloonatic, Keaton prolific creativity tests out hot air balloons and wilderness survival. Keaton is accidentally whisked away on a flying balloon, only to get stranded in untamed wild! Fortunately he encounters a woman (Phyllis Haver) who is a skilled outdoorsman. As they attempt to best each other, Keaton and Haver have wild jungle adventures. The Balloonatic was one of the last short films Keaton made before moving on to feature length films; but the charm and clever gags are on full display in this brief madcap adventure.
