  3. bagno's rating of the film Hard Luck

  4. Alexandru Acsinte's rating of the film Hard Luck

    Some really funny gags in Buster's attempts to kill himself. Not the strongest one, but one hell of an ending.

  5. lndah's rating of the film Hard Luck

    Bigger bait for bigger nothing!

  6. Ruiz Buñuel's rating of the film Hard Luck

  7. Andreia Ribeiro's rating of the film Hard Luck

    Thank God that final scene was discovered, it's hilarious!

  8. Adam Suraf's rating of the film Hard Luck

    The last Keaton film to be found, painstakingly restored to about 85 percent of what it looked like in 1921. Down on his luck, Buster unsuccessfully tries to end his life, drinking a bottle of poison that only gets him drunk, laying in front of a train that stops and turns around, hanging a noose from a branch that bends at will. Always funny.

  9. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Hard Luck

    One of Keaton's lesser films is still somewhat entertaining with a clever but lost ending.

  10. Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film Hard Luck

    Even masters make misfires, and this Buster Keaton two-reeler lacks the spark that defined most of his work. An aimless comedic jaunt about a jilted lover trying to commit suicide, HARD LUCK is nevertheless Keaton's favorite of his own films because it contained the biggest laugh of his career, a clever finale that has since been lost. The film itself only exists in a truncated, degraded form.
