" There is still much to cherish in this fragmented and partly lost shortie. Keaton still have fun gags and great ideas and the plot that starts with our hero attempting suicide by jumping in front of cars and going under falling safes is something that you will never see in today's comedies unless you want to be labeled as "bad taste comedy that makes suicide fun" but Keaton gets away with it. Sadly, the ending is totally missing and other small sequences is lost so this one is only for the bigg"
