DIRECTED BY:
James W. Horne
GENRE:
Comedy
Buster Keaton is still trying to get the girl in this classy comedy from 1927. This time he’s playing a bookish fellow who takes up sports in order to impress his sweetheart (Anne Cornwall). Baseball buffs will notice legendary Detroit Tiger outfielder Sam Crawford as a coach in one of the film’s funniest scenes. Keaton, a real life baseball fanatic, causes as much mayhem on the ballfield as you can imagine! According to film lore, Buster actually directed this feature, which was filmed largely at LA City College and stars the likes of Flora Bramley and the immortal Snitz Edwards! (BW)
