The Love Nest is a 1923 American short comedy silent film written and directed by and starring Buster Keaton.


In order to escape from his life and his lost love, Keaton sets off on his small boat, Cupid, but runs into the whaling ship, The Love Nest. The whaler's merciless captain (Joe Roberts) throws crew members overboard for even the slightest offense.

After his steward accidentally pours hot tea over the captain's hand, the captain tosses him overboard and replaces him with Keaton. Despite a series of mishaps, Keaton manages to avoid the fate of other crewmen.
