The opening scene, a dream sequence prior to the vaudeville routines which follow, is what makes this film famous. In it Keaton plays everyone in a theatre simultaneously (through multiple exposures). He is the band leader, all its members, the dancers on the stage and everyone in the audience.

" Buster Keaton doing multiple roles in a surreal dream even appearing as a monkey. The resolution is a little boring and I lost some interest in this short."

My movie year 2017 (682 movies items)

"6.1. (Yle Areena) Jokin tässä surrealistiset mitat saavassa huumorissa viehättää. Ensin Buster Keaton näkee painajaista, jossa esiintyy ihan törkeän monta Busteria. Tämän jälkeen hän esittää apinaa. Zuaavi-pelleilyn kohdilla lyhäri menettää otettaan, eikä muutamista oivallisista läpistä huolimatta kyllästymisen tunteesta päästä ennen lopun vesisäiliöön jumittunutta naista, jonka Keaton pelastaa lyömällä lasin rikki, minkä jälkeen hän meloo tulvivassa teatterissa"
