Buster Keaton's first feature-length film, made during the successful run of short films during the 20s that lead to his hugely successful solo career, finds him in a role once inhabited on stage by Douglas Fairbanks. As Bertie, feckless and lazy heir, Keaton is forced to strike out and make his own way if he is to marry the woman he loves. Not Keaton's usual brand of comedy, but a recognizable template nonetheless.
