Probable Score

Your Rating

Nick Van Alstyne owns the Henrietta silver mine and is very rich. His son Bertie is naive and spoiled. His daughter Rose is married to shady investor Mark. Mark wrecks Bertie's wedding plans by making him take the blame for Mark's illegitimate daughter. Mark also nearly ruins the family business by selling off Henrietta stock at too low a price. Bertie, of all people, must come to the rescue on the trading floor. (imdb)

Humorous and endearing little film with Buster Keaton in a different movie setting - this is more of a light drama than a slapstick.

An adaptation of one of those pleasant little light comedies that were so big on the stage in the teens and twenties. These sort of things tend get a bit duller and harder to follow when the dialogue's taken away, but the cast here's good enough to make it work reasonably well, and they've added enough visual comic business to liven things up without taking the tone down too low. The "Henrietta" plot feels a bit grafted onto the main romance plot, but the stock exchange scene is a nice payoff.

If you're expecting a Keaton comedy you'll be disappointed, this is more of a lighthearted drama, and not a particularly special one at that. But it is sometimes amusing and never a chore.

Buster's involvement is good solid comedy stuff -- and it's surprising that he seems to have been allowed to put his stamp on what's otherwise a straightforward frothy melodrama.

Comedy for the rich, about the rich. I don't think stock exchange jokes were easy to understand for common people back in 1920, as well as aren't now. It's not a "Buster Keaton's film", he's just a guest actor and the film isn't a slapstick you would except. Adapted from a Broadway play it feels a bit static as a film, even if Buster's acting adds some dynamics.

takes a while to work up to the slapstick that makes buster shine, but when it gets there this movie proves to be quite entertaining. the story is on the light side, the first half could have been seriously reworked, and it suffers from some technical editing issues--you got to cut it some slack though it was made more than 80 years ago. this is an all around watchable movie with good moments and bad.
