Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. Government support only pays for a portion of our work, so we rely on you to help - from stocking our shelves with amazing books, expanding our e-Book selection, classes, events, or even making free WiFi accessible to all. We are trying to raise $500,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community. Please consider donating to help keep our services free to all New Yorkers in 2015 >>

Some professional film critics consider this to be one of the top films of all time. My view is taking into consideration the time element - this silent film was done decades ago - it is a very entertaining and well executed film. However, it is a bit dated by today's standard. Also, Keaton was doing his Chaplin comic moves quite a bit too and this actually in my view slightly lowers the film's quality.
