Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film The Playhouse

One of Buster Keaton's greatest comedies follows the misadventures of a hapless stagehand in an opera house. Exceedingly clever, with some fantastic trick photography that is entirely convincing even today. The highlight is an outstanding dream sequence in which Keaton plays every member of the cast, orchestra, and audience of a minstrel show.
