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.
Release date: 24 September 1921

2020: Others (306 movies items)

"La prima parte รจ tecnicamente eccezionale e davvero piena d'inventiva: Keaton interpreta tutti i ruoli in un teatro (attore, direttore d'orchestra, musicisti, pubblico) in un succedersi di gag in cui sono praticamente invisibili i trucchi per moltiplicarlo sullo schermo. Poi Buster si sveglia e si prosegue non sempre sullo stesso livello: il tema del doppio permane con le gemelle di cui una si innamora del nostro che perรฒ non la distingue dall'altra, ma altri passaggi - come quello degli zuavi"
