Buster Keaton is a bachelor who stands to inherit a fortune if he finds himself a bride by seven o'clock in this 1925 silent feature, which Dave Kehr has described as “a cubist comedy . . . based on a principle of geometric progression” from the number seven. Adapted from a stage-bound play by David Belasco, it takes off into the stratosphere only at the climax, but that outlandish chase sequence alone is well worth the price of admission. 56 min.
