September 26, 2019
The fight sequence is a curious anomaly in Keaton's career, which typically found him escaping violence through pluck and creativity and sheer luck, rather than aggression and violence.

Battling Butler isn't nearly as uproarious as other Keaton classics, although it's sturdy enough to qualify as a good time.

Pugilism and Freud

Has one of the funniest fight scenes ever filmed

One of the Great Stone Face's lesser vehicles but still worth a look.

Below par, at least for the unrivaled master of silent comedy.

There's no room for Buster to stretch out; none of the rhythms are remotely like his own.
