Selected as a "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant" film for the National Film Registry in 1997.

One of Buster Keaton's greatest and most famous comedies, COPS is universally enjoyed for the inventive comedy and amazing chase sequences. However, its darker aspects (Keaton's use of an anarchists bomb risked painful reminders of the horse and wagon, similar to the one Buster drives, that carried a bomb into New York city's Wall Street business district, killing forty people just the previous year) and fatalistic bent ("the end" title is a tombstone) fascinate film historians and Keaton biographers.

It Was Really! Says Bruno In Love!

Early Keaton ingenuity, irony and fun on great display.

Created over 1 year ago.

Always love some Buster and this has nice gags: the teeter totter ladder, a classic Buster disappearing by grabbing a speeding car, hanging his hat on a horse hip bone and more.
