"One Week" - Short Comedy Adventure
released on September 1, 1920
Seven Day Honeymoon Makes One Weak
They just do not make comedy like this anymore, and I just do not know why. First they set up an event that everyone in the audience can relate to, and then turn it totally upside down and sideways. As you watch you cannot keep from thinking to yourself what will probably happen next, and to your great surprise, you are not only wrong, but with hilarious consequences. Our stars, Buster Keaton and his new bride Sybil Seely, are leaving the church and when they get in their 'getaway car' they are handed a note from their dear Uncle Mike. He has given them a new home at 99 Apple Street! What a wonderful surprise. After a heart-stopping trip to their new home they discover that it is a 'build-it-yourself' home, complete with numbered instructions. I remember that for many years the Sears and Roebuck Company actually did sell do-it-yourself homes delivered in many boxes to your location, so this is something that the audience could relate to. But then the fellow that Sybil didn't marry wants to have some fun with them so he changes some of the numbers on the boxes, and the home turns out a bit different than one would expect. This leads to some sight-gags that I would have never expected, thanks to the amazing, genius, twisted minds of Eddie Cline and Buster Keaton. I sat in amazement as things happened that were just totally beyond belief. Wow . . . again I say that comedy today has lost this element of total surprise. The housewarming party on Friday the 13th was totally awesome. Even when I start to expect the unexpected, Keaton turns it around and surprises once again, as if he is reading my mind, almost a hundred years later. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn and enjoy a remarkable twenty minute classic comedy from the days when comedy was King.

Some of my Favorite Motion Pictures:
Probably my all time favorite movie, My Man Godfrey in 1936 not only gives us an comedic peek at the wealthiest and poorest during the Great Depression, but also was the vehicle for Carole Lombard to create the movie icon of the 'dumb blonde screwball comedy' that is a popular theme even today.
Meet John Doe - 1941: The Frank Capra classic set in the Great Depression era that pits the common man against the political masters. You can't be a fan of old movies until you watch Frank Capra's old movies. This one premiered seventy years ago, and it still stirs our emotions and thoughts now. It is as timely as if it were produced today.
The Time of Your Life - 1948: James Cagney financed this strangely different feel-good movie, and he plays the part of Joe, a barfly that tries to live his life by making everyone around him better. I watch this one often, and try to become more like Joe every day.
Pygmalion - 1938: Leslie Howard brings George Bernard Shaw's adventure to life in 1938 London. Sure Higgins could turn a gutter-tramp girl into the perfect lady, but could she then turn Higgins into the perfect husband? Some things are more difficult than others!
Charade - 1963: It doesn't get much better than Cary Grant and Audry Hepburn in a tale of death, deception, spies and lost wealth as a woman tries to sort out the good guys from the bad guys in this cold-war spy thriller love story.
