Solid Slapstick Feature With a Couple of Good Sequences
14 March 2005 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

Overall this is a solid feature, rather than an especially good one, yet it does contain a couple of sequences that are quite good, and that for a few moments hearken back to Buster Keaton's glory days. Some of the material does not really give Keaton that much of a chance to use his best talents, but he and the rest of the cast get pretty good mileage out of the story.

The story has Buster involved in a rivalry for the attentions of Dorothy Sebastian. Since his rival is a trapeze artist, Buster feels the need to compete with him on his own ground. There are a couple of sequences that work particularly well. Early in the movie, Keaton and Sebastian have a complicated miscommunication, and it is handled well, getting good mileage out of it. Later on, Buster has some funny moments in trying to demonstrate his agility. As in some of his silent features, when Keaton plays a clumsy character, he actually demonstrates his own considerable physical agility even as he performs pratfalls.

Overall, this is a solid slapstick comedy that is worth seeing. The setup is a familiar one, yet the story is not all that predictable, and there are at least a couple of sequences that give Keaton some good material to work with.
