The Playhouse 1921

the-playhouse-1921

The opening scene, a dream sequence prior to the vaudeville routines which follow, is what makes this film famous. In it Keaton plays everyone in a theatre simultaneously (through multiple exposures). He is the band leader, all its members, the dancers on the stage and everyone in the audience.

Directors: Buster Keaton, Edward F. Cline
Producer: Joseph M. Schenck
