Brilliantly exemplifying Buster Keaton's ability to mine rich humor from the inanimate, The Navigator is a classic of the Golden Age of Comedy, centered on and about a single extraordinary prop: an immense five hundred-foot yacht.

In a return to the "pampered youth" role he had played in The Saphead and Battling Butler, Keaton stars as Rollo Treadway, an inexperienced lad of extraordinary wealth - and surprisingly little common sense - who finds himself adrift on The Navigator with no one else on board excerpt an equally naive girl. After discovering each other's presence in an ingenious ballet of unintentional hide-and-seek, the couple resourcefully fashion a home for themselves aboard the derelict boat, in spite of their unfamiliarity with the tools of domesticity.

They then embark on a series of misadventures on the ocean floor and upon the high seas, surrounded by a fleet of menacing cannibals, where the film reaches its explosively funny climax, with the aid of a crate of rocket flares.

As a special feature, this DVD includes two additional complete films that demonstrate Keaton's penchant for maritime mayhem. In The Boat, Buster and family set sail aboard the homemade Damfino, while in The Love Nest, he trades sailboat for U-boat to plumb new depths of hilarity.
