Buster doing the thing that he does best is a very good thing to see. This one is well done and shows off his timing and acrobatics in the best way. It’s also the one with the falling house gag.
Sometimes it’s difficult to give credit to older films as we’ve moved on so much with effects and computerised stunts so if you want to see how it used to be done, check out this offering which is dramatic and inventive with comedy situations that people now wouldn’t even attempt to film.
Nice, comfortable humour and a very good performance from Ernest who, despite most silent movie acting, is a really believable character here.
Also look out for the bit with the hats. If you know Buster movies/photos, you’ll recognise one of them and if not it’s still funny anyway.
