Film introduction provided by Derrick Doty, local film historian.
Starring Buster Keaton, this comedy follows a bookish college student as he tries to become a athlete in order to impress a girl. The film features sports and uniforms from the 1920s.
Prior to the feature film, participants will view "One Run Elmer," a short film that features Buster Keaton and Jim Thorpe, a Kansan that played professional football in the 1920s.
This event supports "Chase County: A League of Our Own," a special exhibit that explores the baseball tradition in Chase County. The project is part of "Hometown Teams," a statewide initiative exploring the way sports build and unite communities.
