This is the first glimpse I ever got of Buster Keaton and have seen it many times since. I showed it to some of my younger classes at school and they rolled laughing, much as I did. There is a brief nod to blackface in it which put me on edge but no one seemed to mind or even notice it. I was ready with a "teachable moment" lesson on the impropriety of race humor and why it was mainstream in that time but it wasn't necessary.
