Gag for gag, one of the funniest of all Keaton's features as he copes with the snags involved in running a deserted ocean liner single-handed, philosophically accepting the fact that machinery has a malevolent will of its own. Prevented from becoming one of his best only because it (necessarily) lacks the lovingly detailed backgrounds and incredibly beautiful visual textures of films like Our Hospitality, The General and Steamboat Bill Jr.
