Movie Info

One Week was the first Buster Keaton-directed film to be released to the public (The High Sign was made earlier but shelved for several months). Based on a now-obscure educational short called Home Made, it involves a build-it-yourself house given to Keaton and his new bride (Sybil Seely). Unbeknownst to the couple, the wife's disgruntled former suitor has changed the numbers on the boxes containing the building materials. Keaton does make the house in one week, as the instructions have

In 1920's One Week, the silent comedian known as the Great Stone Face attempts to assemble the build-it-yourself home he received as a wedding present.

Very funny slapstick two-reeler.

Physical humor and tomfoolery abound in this romp through the first week of married bliss and pitfalls, but there's also something really sweet about the love between Keaton and his new bride.

"One Week" was the first Keaton directed film to be released due to The "High Sign" being shelved at Keaton's will. The film is a masterpiece and it makes sense that even at 24 minutes it was one of the top-grossing films of 1920. The film showcases the big props Keaton was known for and while he looks like he gets smashed up pretty bad at times, the danger really adds to the films intrigue. With such a short runtime, it's shocking how many hilarious scenes and sets are seen in short succession. I loved every minute of it and anyone that appreciates comedy will find it a fun and worthwhile watch!
