I just watched The Saphead, a Buster Keaton movie made in 1919. As a Buster Keaton movie it was a little annoying, because it only had a couple stunts. It was an adaptation of a stage play called The Henrietta, and I think it didn't convert well to being a silent film. The inability to explain things through dialogue didn't help it, I think. It had a clever story, but it damn near put me to sleep.

The whole thing was worth it when, in the last two seconds, they show Buster Keaton's reaction to the news that his woman had twins. Giggles.
