Buster Keaton’s 1925 silent comedy Seven Chances features a young financial broker Jimmie Shannon (Keaton) whose impending bankruptcy may be over when his firm reveals that his grandfather’s will leaves him seven million dollars. The only catch…in order to inherit the money he has to marry before 7pm on his 27th birthday which just happens to be TODAY! When his sweetheart turns down his marriage proposal because she think it’s just for money, Shannon goes on a wild adventure trying to land a bride. Don’t you worry, things all work out.
Before Seven Chances, we’ll be screening a new restoration of the 1920 Keaton short Neighbors: A young couple who live next to each other in tenement apartments do everything they can to be together despite of their feuding families.
