A Buster Keaton classic. Our hero attempts to assemble the elements of his wedding present, a D.I.Y house. His arch-rival has swapped the parts around and the resulting structure is a surrealist wonder. Other spectacular adventures follow in this seven-part film, one for each day of the week. Davis's score is full of stunning effects, suggesting the spinning house and other crazy Keaton stunts.
