The American Film Institute said it will transmit Buster Keaton’s 1921 film “The Boat” over the Internet. The film replaces “The Rink,” a 1916 Charlie Chaplin film that bowed on the World Wide Web on Jan. 22.
The AFI said more than 70,000 people have logged onto the site to watch the Chaplin film.
“The Boat” will run until April 20, when AFI OnLine Cinema will launch a Webcast of Harold Lloyd’s “High and Dizzy” from 1920.
The clip, using streaming audio and video technologies from VDONet, is embedded in a screen-within-a-screen to look like the auditorium of an old art deco theater.
