Our Score
Seven days of blissful mayhem for Buster Keaton fans as honeymooners Keaton and Sybil Sealy are given a home to assemble, only to watch it go cock-eyed because a rival to Buster has changed the numbers on the home components. The result is a lop-sided structure which gets swept away by an oncoming train. A tad mechanical, but some ground-breaking gags most of which are still used by comedians today.

Summary

Madcap comedy starring Buster Keaton as a newlywed attempting to put together a happy home for his blushing bride, but her jealous ex is determined to sabotage things, leading to chaos. With Sybil Seely and Joe Roberts.
