What! No Beer?

a 1933 talkie starring buster keaton and jimmy durante

I came across this awesome swedish poster for the american MGM film “What! No beer?” starring Buster Keaton and Jimmy Durante. I guess this was Keaton’s last starring roll in a US film. Although it was a money maker at the time, it seems to have falling into the halls of forgotten films. In fact I can only seem to find it on VHS on Amazon and no DVDs available. Maybe I’ll just have to wait to see it when its in TMC for a Keaton festival or something. The blot revolves around the two stars trying to start up an abandoned Beer Brewery in hopes of prohibition being lifted. Even if this movie isn’t great, I think it would be great to see as a historical document.
