This classic silent film is a study of things that are not as they appear. It opens with a famous sequence in which Buster Keaton plays every part: the conductor, the orchestra, the actors, the audience and the stagehands. We then learn the sequence has been a dream by a stagehand; the bed is a prop and the bedroom is a set in a theater. The stagehand goes on to fall in love with a twin, but can never tell which one it was. The score as written by Robert Israel is brilliantly done, especially in the opening sequence where Keaton portrays the orchestra itself. This one is sure to be an audience favorite for all ages.
