Keaton's second full-length feature, a classic silent comedy, shows off his appetite for period detail, his love of transportation gags, and his marvellous acrobaticism. It features some of his most famous stunts, including the final waterfall rescue, for which he did not use a double. After the film, he married his leading lady, although they did not live happily ever after.
