Synopsis

More stone-faced slapstick with comic genius Buster Keaton. Here he plays an intellectual college student whose preference for the library over the football field threatens to alienate his girlfriend. The solution? Buster tries his hand at sports and, despite his basic ineptitude, somehow manages to become a celebrated football star. Also included is Buster's 1921 short 'The Boat', in which our hapless hero has a series of madcap adventures with a homemade boat.
