Loved it! I'm fast becoming a Buster Keaton fan.
As delightful a slapstick comedy as the day it was made. Keaton's physical humor is second to none and keep familiar gags fresh and exhilarating. The quick-paced-never-miss-a-beat editing and camera work make this one of the best short comedies around. In a word: hysterical.
Director, lead actor, stuntman...Buster Keaton has to be one of the most underappreciated influential contributors to the film industry.
