Film Details

MOCA Cleveland co-presents

Buster Keaton's Two-reel Comedies, Program 1

United States | 1920-21 | Buster Keaton, Eddie Cline

Buster Keaton's Two-reel Comedies, Program 1

Here are the first four of the 19 hilarious two-reelers that Buster Keaton starred in and directed before turning his attention to features. (The remaining 15 shorts will show over the next four weeks.) Program includes: The High Sign (1921), in which Buster plays a contract killer; One Week (1920), in which Buster builds a pre-fab house; Convict 13 (1920), in which Buster escapes Death Row only to be mistaken for a prison guard by other convicts; and The Scarecrow (1920) in which Buster competes with his roommate for the hand of a farmer’s daughter. All silent with music tracks.

35mm. Total 76 min. This program is co-presented by MOCA Cleveland, whose exhibition "Kate Gilmore: Body of Work," on view until June 9, features performance-based videos and sculpture by an artist who acknowledges Keaton as an influence. MOCA members $7. A ticket stub from this program can be redeemed for half-price admission to MOCA through June 9.
