This is one of the great lost Buster Keaton short films that almost redefined film making. This is in short a film about chemist that bumbles around in a glorious farce. The film itself is quit funny and serves as one of the first to use sound. The addition of sound, in this way, makes for a much funnier and enjoyable short. Having been one of the first to use sound in this way, the film is considered by many to be a glorious example of how far the medium had risen in such a short amount of time.
