Two Keaton shorts
13 March 2008 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Convict 13 (1920)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Buster Keaton gets mistaken for a convict and must find a way to break out of prison before they hang him. Here's another middle of the road short from Keaton, which features plenty of small laughs but not enough to make this one of his better films. Highlights include the scene where he tries to catch the fish who ate his golf ball as well as the scene where they go to hang him.

Daydreams (1922)

*** (out of 4)

Before a father will let him marry his daughter Buster Keaton must go into the city to try and find a good job. Once in the city Buster finds it impossible to keep a job and soon has the police chasing him. Here's a pretty good short that has several nice laughs including a suicide attempt plus another scene with Keaton working on the stage. The stuff dealing with a parade is another highlight.
