Buster Keaton: The Blacksmith (1922)



Reviews and Comments

This Buster Keaton short showcases his talent for mechanical comedy. He's an assistant to a blacksmith, but when the blacksmith is arrested, Keaton's in charge. Customers come in with various problems with their horses or cars, and the solution Keaton invents for them (and the mayhem wrought upon them) is devilishly clever, not to mention laugh-out-loud funny.
