Review by anonymous (posted on 20-Oct-2006)

Buster Keaton is, and probably will be, my all time favourite comedian. A master, a genius. This movie is far too underrated and unknown to the general public and deserves a place on the top shelf. Comedy at its best, without the "over the top" excessive humour tipical from those days, subtle situations such as Buster that "couldn't be killed in the house" and everybody was sort of behaving while he was in it, waiting for the opportunity to arise for Buster to get out so that he could be killed. I loved it, it is funny in a way that makes you laugh loud, not just grin, something that probably only "Fawlty towers" and "Gearge and Mildred" have achieved. The Don
