    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. 11 years 4 months ago

    Director, lead actor, stuntman...Buster Keaton has to be one of the most underappreciated influential contributors to the film industry. 4 years 8 months ago
