    Keaton > Chaplin, IMO. 5 years 3 months ago

    Maybe its just because Chaplin has been parodied so much that he feels cliche to me, but I definitely get a deeper sense of sophistication from Keaton, even in his slapstick.

    In particular, the stunts in this and The General would never be attempted let alone allowed in today's movie studios. And 90 year old special effects that tricked me enough to make me laugh. Technically, this is an amazing movie.
