Buster Keaton’s best sound feature casts “The Great Stone Face” as Professor Post, a naïve college pedant who mistakenly believes he has inherited $750,000. Hoping to use this windfall to bring the Fine Arts to the waiting world, he agrees to finance a Broadway-bound musical, assuming it will be presented in tasteful, classical tradition.
