The Goat 1921

  • 4.4
Filled with complex and inventive gags, THE GOAT is one of Buster Keaton's finest comedies. Buster is mistaken for the escaped criminal "Dead Shot Dan" (played by Malcolm St. Clair, who co-directed the film with Keaton) and is on the run.

It's difficult to criticize any aspect of Buster Keaton's physical comedy. Every moment of his films is marked by a seemingly impossible move, defying the laws of gravity. He's a real gem; I want to watch "The General," and continue my downward drift into comic madness.

When Keaton gets wrongly identified as an escaped convict, the chase begins. Although not my favorite of Keaton's shorts as the whole movie is essentially a chase, there are some excellent gags and one of the most beautiful escape scenes ever. The man pursuing Buster locks him up in the dining room and is facing Buster down, when Buster takes a most surprising escape route which includes a leap through a window above a door.

Buster Keaton is amazing, and I recommend watching all Buster Keaton films made prior to 1930. (A few after that are good as well).
