Great Keaton comedy!
Great example of a really decent comedy silent. Mr Keaton has always been the best at physical comedy in silent film. Always his own stuntman, his athletic feats just haven't been equalled. (Well maybe I shouldn't dismiss Harold Lloyd... and Jackie Chan certainly deserves praise & there are probably a few off my radar...) BUT I swear he pulls off impossible stunts... Not only great stunts, but no less than half a dozen times, did I find myself laughing out loud!
Great light hearted movie to perk up anybody's day. Try it you'll enjoy it!
I think it deserves four stars.
Special thanks to the kind folks at The Silent Hall of Fame for uploading these great old movies!
