Seven Chances (1925)

Maybe I was in just the right mood, but Seven Chances (1925)(6/10) felt like my favorite Buster Keaton film. The version I saw seemed restored and the clean images helped. Keaton is known for his slapstick, but I never how much he also used camera tricks as part of his filmmaking. The story is basically about a lawyer (Keaton) who must get married by 7 PM that evening to inherit millions. He already has someone he loves and that loves him, but because of a misunderstanding, she rejects him. Thus, he goes about trying to get married, until the misunderstanding is cleared up. The bad news is that he’s running out of time and the other women he’s tried to marry are now raging mad. I don’t know if I would pick this film, but it was mildly entertaining.
