A thoughtful and enjoyable romp through history with Buster and Wallace Beery as the rival for the love of Margaret Leahy.The “caveman” segment is very well done as is the Roman Empire piece.The modern era with it’s amazing stunts is pure genius.The scene with Buster in the last segment in the restaurant with the crab is absolutely hilarious.Watch it and appreciate the genius of the master of comedy.
