Summary
  • Battling Butler (1926; 71 min.): Keaton plays Alfred Butler, a fragile young man sent into the country by his wealthy father to become a man, but who ends up being mistaken for the renowned prizefighter, "Battling" Butler, as a result of a charade to impress a young lady
  • The haunted house (1921; 21 min.): Buster takes refuge in a mansion rigged with a series of frightening booby traps
  • The frozen north (1922; 18 min.): This satirical parody of William S. Hart's melodramatic films finds Buster in the frozen north and mistaken identies cause all sorts of trouble. This film only survives in fragmentary condition and was reproduced from the best available copy
