Hello Maggie. Why do I like all drawings of you?
College | 1927 | dir. James W. Horne and Buster Keaton
In one of the most audacious endings of all time, Buster Keaton concludes College with five quick shots of a young couple spontaneously dashing into a church, strolling out of it married, then with children, bickering in old age, and buried side-by-side. The End!

JS: A young family, stranded on a mountain pass, killing time until help arrives. They take turns reading aloud–the text in question having been purchased by mistake and packed by accident, and later discovered in the luggage as potential kindling. The father shields the first child from those passages displaying traces of grotesquerie. The mother corrects the second child’s pronunciation or praises his elocution–as the case may be–on the occasion of the most ostentatious phrases. The third child, meanwhile, has wandered off into the woods. Ah!–it’s beginning to rain.
