Trivia The most famous scene of this film originated by accident. In the filming of a chase scene down a steep slope, Buster Keaton inadvertently dislodged some rocks which tumbled down after him as if in pursuit and he had to scramble to dodge them. At a preview showing, he saw that that accident got the biggest laughs in the film. Thus inspired, he decided to reshoot the scene with over 100 papier-mache "rocks" ranging from pebbles to six-foot boulders so his character would have to deal with a massive avalanche in the scene.
