Mad Dog and The Farmer's Daughter

Buster Keaton is a farm hand who shares a one room house with Joe, the other farm hand. Both of them are in love with the farmer's daughter, and one of them will marry her before this fast-paced twenty minutes is finished. Buster wakes up with a tooth ache and Joe helps him get pull the tooth before breakfast. Later, after the farm dog eats a cream pie Buster thinks that the dog is mad, and tries in vain to stay away from him. After he gets soaked in a mud pond Buster strips down to his underwear and when he passes by the farmer and his daughter, the farmer is upset that he appeared in front of his daughter in his underwear so he chases him into the corn field where Buster quickly puts on the clothes of the scarecrow and pretends to be the scarecrow. Later, as he is kneeling by the river, farmer's daughter Sybil sees him and thinks that he is proposing to her, and quickly accepts. After a wild chase, a stolen horse and motorbike, Buster and Sybil run into a preacher who marries them. Whew, what a fast twenty minutes . . . they sure knew how to pack the action into every frame of movie film a hundred years ago!
