Title:Three Ages

Date: 1923
Type: Drama / Comedy / Romance
Rating: 4 Stars 4/5
Colour: Black and White / Silent
Director: Eddie Cline and Buster Keaton

The eternal love triangle is played out as two men fight for the affections of one woman in the stone age, Roman times and the present (1920's). This is a good mix of romantic comedy, send ups of historical periods and typcal Buster Keaton physical comedy. Buster Keaton is well supported by Margaret Leahy (in her only fim) as the romantic interest and Wallace Beery as his competition. Some of the scenes show Buster Keaton's creative talent at it's est, like thee lion having its paws manicured and a chariot race in the snow with Keaton using dogs instead of horses.
