The High Sign by Buster Keaton, 1921. Should you need a reminder of what a great comic Buster Keaton was, go no further than here. He starts off with a brilliant scene of reading a newspaper, goes to a shooting gallery where he hooks up a Rube Goldberg devise to prove what a great marksman he is and ends up in a wild scene in a house full of hidden rooms and secret passages. Keaton was disappointed with this, his second independently produced film and held it back a year before he released it. It is A masterpiece of the form. Enjoy.

I have added a sound track to an earlier archive film with the caption form Wikopedia..Never Weaken is a 1921 silent comedy film starring Harold Lloyd and directed by Fred Newmeyer. It was Lloyd's last short film, running to three reels, before he moved permanently into feature-length production. It was also one of his trademark "thrill" comedies, featuring him dangling from a tall building. Lloyd and his crew honed and perfected their "thrill" filming techniques in this film, and put them to astonishing use in the 1923 classic feature Safety Last!...
