  1. lndah's rating of the film Daydreams

    This one is a sad comedy. Shit, who the hell can laugh. (Maybe I'm just overly dramatic)

  2. Log Lady's rating of the film Daydreams

    It's a shame some of the footage is missing, but there are some funny moments left that make this worth seeing.

  3. Adam Suraf's rating of the film Daydreams

    Often noted as the Keaton film missing the most footage, said to be between 3-10 minutes, which would have made this his only three reeler. As it stands, choppy and uneven, there are some good chase scenes involving hordes of cops (like "Cops"), possibly directed by Fatty Arbuckle in San Francisco, and Joe Keaton (Buster's father) giving his boy the famous Vaudeville boot.

  4. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Daydreams

    Even with the missing footage this is a wonderful short, with its iconic steamboat wheel scene becoming a prime example of his style of comedy.

  5. Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film Daydreams

    Buster Keaton promises the father of his fiance that he will become a success, or shoot himself before he marries his daughter in this 1922 short, which uses irony to great effect as Keaton juxtaposes his fiance's daydreams of his success based on his letters, with reality. Several minutes of missing footage can't dampen Keaton's genius, and many believe parts were ghost directed by a disgraced Fatty Arbuckle.
