Buster Keaton stars in this comedy as the captive of hostile Indians. His captors tie him to a stake and prepare him for death by fire. Keaton moves with the stake as the Indians try frantically to place the firewood around him. When he survives the flames due to his fire-resistant clothes, Keaton is made a member of the tribe and named Little Chief Paleface. He then foils the scheme of unsavory oil speculators to steal the land from his Indian companion.

Not to be confused with "Murder By Television" starring Bela Lugosi. This film is about a young inventor trying to get his television system financed. A gang of crooks are out to stop him. This film is considered science fiction by many because the concept of television was still on the drawing boards in the 30's, but it's also a comedy. Stars Lyle Talbot, Mary Astor, Nat Pendleton, and Joyce Compton. Whether you would consider this scifi or not, you should find it entertaining anyway.

“It certainly is unusual’ “Unique story” “Interesting characters, entertaining”   “Brilliant portrayal, neglected film” (IMDB reviews quotes). A compelling seriocomic fantasy about a mysterious stranger who manipulates the lives of tenants in a London lodging house. An offbeat film with an excellent cast headed by Conrad Veidt. Remake of the 1918 silent (which also is PD if you can find the DVD). IMDB rating 7.0. Directed by Berthold Viertel. Released in 1935. Complete print....

A college friend of the local soda-jerk comes to town and lets it be known that he's looking for property on which to build a resort. When he buys some land and suddenly "discovers" there's oil underneath it--and generously offers to sell the townspeople shares in his newly found oil reserves--Dr. Christian suspects a swindle and sets out to prove it.

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.

Fatty Arbuckle and Buster Keaton team up as hotel bellhops. Some interesting props, including a horse-drawn elevator. Decent gags, culminating with a classic chase scene. The movie is not a classic, but it's typical Arbuckle and Keaton and a good illustration of the kind of comedy they did together. The IMDb entry is at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0008874/
