I'm interested in Natalie and that's one of the reasons I like this movie. It's also a very amusing film.

It's outstanding in the beginning but then it gets a little dull, but maybe that's just me. Buster makes a great monkey.

A William S. Hart parody and one of the strangest Buster shorts (with one violent scene and an Erich von Stroheim impression).

Quite tiresome. Is there really something funny about hundreds of desperate old maids chasing Buster around town?

Buster's first talkie. I think this gets better toward the end.

Out West (1918)
A terrific, entertaining film (though there's some nasty stuff in it as well). But Arbuckle is particularly great in this and I love the fact that the idea of the story came from Natalie Talmadge.

A few great moments, for example at the dinner table. The Polish phrases make it extra special.

Quite funny and charming but with a slight sense of melancholia. A big chase sequence in the end, much like in Seven Chances and Cops.

I don't think this works as well as it should somehow. Being a Buster film, there could have been tons of more gags and tricks in the style of Scarecrow or One Week.

Spite Marriage could've easily been a Harold Lloyd film; it's a bit slow ...and I think it lacks spark.

A Buster Keaton movie list. These films are like tiny symphonies of laughter and beauty. I've yet to watch most of his 1930's films so I'll be adding them later.
