I remember watching Buster Keaton stuff with my grandpa, I wish I could talk to him more about it. Never saw this one before, it was hilarious and so nicely put together. The gag with putting his jacket on the puddle to catching himself with the fishing rod, it was all so well timed. I put some jazz on to compensate for the lack of a soundtrack, it worked just as well! Glad I could see this and that it wasn't lost forever.
