Funny funny precode film clearly shows what a good sound comedian Buster Keaton was
16 January 2006 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

This is a great film that is very funny especially once it gets going. The premise is that an engaged couple wants to wed but can't do so until the girl's older sister does so (they don't want her to appear to be an old maid). The sister is having a hard time finding anyone to marry because she insists her husband be a great lover (and have great other things, as a sly comment as one dumped suitor comes out of the swimming pool implies). Into this madness comes Buster Keaton who is run over accidentally by the fiancé. Sensing an opportunity, the fiancé begins to spread the rumor that Keaton is a great lover. Soon not only the "old maid" sister, but every other woman in the area is pursuing Keaton.

Keaton was a master comedian and it really shows here. I'm just floored that this, like many of his other sound films aren't better known, since Keaton really did manage to keep the laughs coming for over 50 years in the movies. This is a perfect example of the good stuff he did that most people don't know about. This is a very funny comedy full of wicked pre-code japes as well as typical Keaton style physical gags. I put this film on expecting to smile here and there and instead found myself chuckling steadily through out.

Recommended to anyone wants to see a good screwball comedy with more than a few risqué moments.
