Two old soldiers, Jeb and Homer, chat about the Civil War. Homer tells his story of being a Kentucky youth, who enlists with the South only to discover that his brother has joined the Blues. He's captured and his brother frees him, then the tide turns and it's Homer who has to rescue his brother. When the North retakes the town, Homer must use all his wits - and a few short logs of wood - to save himself. Have he and Jeb met before? Written by <>

Mooching Through Georgia (1939)

** (out of 4)

Columbia short has an old man (Buster Keaton) telling of how he helped win the Civil War by outsmarting the Yanks. Most of Keaton's sound material was rather hit and miss and that holds true with this short he did for Columbia. I think the biggest problem with some of Keaton's later films is that studios didn't allow him to be Keaton but instead tried turning him into someone else. There's a lot of stuff borrowed from The Three Stooges shorts including numerous hits to the head but Keaton still manages to shine in this unoriginal material. There are a few nice laughs including one scene where Buster and his brother accidentally sign up for opposite sides of the war. Another good joke comes when Buster must face a firing squad. A lot of the jokes are rather lazy and require Keaton to just fall down or stumble across something and these here are the jokes that don't do Keaton's talents any justice. If you're a fan of Keaton then this is worth watching but others should start off with some of his silent classics.
