THE HIGH SIGN was Buster Keaton's first independent effort but he believed the film retained too much of Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle's style of comedy and not enough of his own. He shelved the film and made ONE WEEK instead. THE HIGH SIGN was released only after Keaton broke his ankle and Joseph M. Schenck needed a film to release. THE HIGH SIGN contains one great Keaton sequence: Buster sits down with a newspaper that slowly opens up to the size of a bed sheet.

Buster Keaton never made a bad movie. Delightful
