The best part is at the end, but overall it's not such a bad movie. Much better than some of the stuff he's done.

The slapstick finale is, as indicated by other users here, pretty impressive. Still, it's too little, too late. Most of the comic material beforehand is old *and* stupid, a lethal combination

Not terribly funny until the last few minutes involving all the trap doors.

this bad boy was full of everything that makes buster funny and entertaining, and all in a small package--cutting out the shortfalls of his early feature length films. i've said it before, and i'll say it again, i fall in love with buster more every time i see another of his films.

Keaton was at his best with physical comedy, and those last 5 minutes are some excellent stuff. The rest of it is pretty funny too.

Only a couple memorable moments in this early short: 1) the cutaway scene revealing all four rooms as Buster races through them, and 2) the 'High Sign' itself.
