An evening of classic Buster Keaton shorts. After Keaton's successful work with  Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, in 1922 producer Joseph Schenck gave him his own production unit, Buster Keaton Comedies.

MT WIFE'S RELATIONS - Through a judicial error Buster finds himself married to a large domineering woman with an unfriendly father and four bullying brothers.

THE BLACKSMITH - Buster plays an assistant blacksmith to the big workers (Joe Roberts), shoeing horses and repairing cars, with predictably mixed results.

DAYDREAMS - A sincere young man must leave his home to win his fortune so he can marry his hometown sweetheart, or else.

COPS - A series of mishaps results in a young man being chased by the entire city's police force.
