I loved the shots of multiple Keatons, and while the comedy in this short film wasn't up to par with some of Keaton's other works, it was still very funny. He remains my favorite silent film star for a reason. It's unfortunate that there was a blackface segment...not something the film and theater world can be proud of. Luckily it was brief, and rather offset by the other impersonations Keaton was doing within the same segment. This one still worth a watch, in my opinion.
