A Very Hysterical Buster Keaton Short Film!
29 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this short one day when I watched the Buster Keaton feature film Seven Chances, and now I am going to give my opinion on this film. In my opinion, this is a very hysterical Buster Keaton short film that is going to leave you in stitches! Buster Keaton was totally a master at making both movies and feature films as well! This is one of my favorite Buster Keaton short films, other ones that I really love are Cops, the Playhouse, and there are a lot more but I am not going to mention them just now, but I also really love Buster Keaton's feature films, such as The General, The Cameraman, and Seven Chances, I just plain love Buster Keaton, nothing more, nothing less!

Buster Keaton has always been one of my favorite actors from the silent film era, because he has made a lot of movies that he directed have been some of my favorites! Buster Keaton was a genius, because it just does not seem possible that I could love all of the movies he made! In my opinion, Buster Keaton is not just one of the greatest silent movie actors, but he is also one of the greatest actors that there have ever been!

My overall opinion on this is that you have really got to watch this, IT IS TOTALLY HYSTERICAL AND FUNNY!

10/10
