Critic Reviews for Spite Marriage
Part of the plot harks back to The Navigator, but three of the sequences put the film up in Division One, crowning a decade of unparalleled creativity which was then stifled by studio inflexibility.
Words can hardly tell of the relief it was to look at Mr. Keaton's imaginative but silly silent antics in his latest farce, Spite Marriage.
There's still enough inspired joy in this old film to make most current comedies look feebly unoriginal.
The chaos Buster causes as a stage stand-in and the sequence when he tries to put a drunken woman to bed just about save the day.
An enjoyable, but relatively minor, entry in Keaton's oeuvre that was his last silent movie.
