Audience Reviews for The Scarecrow

  • Oct 05, 2011
    The opening sequence with the string-operated dining-room gadgetry is just blindingly brilliant. The remaining minutes are a letdown in comparison, but the first section can not be missed. The film is 20 minutes, rather than two as listed above.

    The film "The Scarecrow" is 18 Minutes in Length but delivers a feature film's worth of laughter! While Keaton plays the part of the scarecrow fairly late in the short film it's the dog chase scene that is the centerpiece of the movie. The dog does some pretty crazy work when it climbs the ladder but it's Keaton who displays the most adept sense of athleticism. The guy was blessed with an extraordinary talent to create and employee his creations to the best of his abilities to make comedic gold. The ending sequence in which Keaton and Sybil Seely (the farmer's daughter) ride the motorcycle into the lake and the parson, also precariously on board, marries them in the water. The film ends with this and a closing out of Keaton's face spitting out water, it's genius! This is another one of the many short films of Buster Keaton that are some of the best moments in comedy history!

    Once again Buster Keaton cleverly crafts some fun scenes with a unique and original quality to them. Another good short from the talented slapstick star.

    Great creativity and inventiveness by our classic genius comedy fellow. Don't miss this short out. 87/100
