Synopsis

Classic comedy triple bill. In 'Tillie's Punctured Romance' (1917) Charlie Chaplin plays a conman who tricks an innocent young girl into giving him her father's savings. In 'Steamboat Bill Jr' (1923) Buster Keaton plays the son of a steamboat captain who arrives back from college to help out with the family business and surprises everyone with his breathtaking lack of nautical ability. Finally, in 'The Inspector General' (1949), Danny Kaye plays an illiterate showman who gets mistaken for the Inspector General by the inhabitants of a small Russian village, leading to much confusion and skullduggery.
