Seeing Stars (1922)

**** (out of 4)

Here's a rather historically incredible promotional film from First National. For years it was believe that Keaton and Charles Chaplin didn't work together until Limelight but the two of them are together here. Filmed at the Ambassador Hotel in L.A., this film gathered together various silent stars to promote the Independent Film Guild. In the film Keaton is waiting on Chaplin and Jackie Coogan. No laughs but it's an incredible sight to see this film.

You can find this short on Laughsmith's Buster Keaton set.
