Not hysterically funny but it's nice to see Keaton returning to his roots in some ways.
28 June 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Buster in a watch repairman who is infatuated with a lady. They go to the circus but instead of her falling for him, she's taken a strong liking to the handsome trapeze artist. So, later Buster tries his hand at the trapeze...with predictable results. Can he still manage to get the girl?

If you are looking for the genius and style of Buster Keaton's silent films, then you probably will be more disappointed in this short from Educational Films (a company, despite its name, that made comedies). The film lacks the brilliance and timing of his early efforts. However, if you can repress the part of the brain that expects that, then this film is actually pretty pleasant. Plus, it was a HUGE improvement over the types of films he'd just finished making for MGM--as pairing him and his sweet style with Jimmy Durante was simply insane!

Unlike Keaton's first film for Educational, "The Gold Ghost", this one finds him playing a much more physical character--with lots of pratfalls and trapeze tricks that look like the best of Keaton's old shorts. However, the story itself is only okay--so don't assume it's quite up to the standards of the 1920s Keaton. Still, it's pleasant and nice to see him getting back to his more physical style, as that was his forte.
