The High Sign
Starring Buster Keaton
Filmed in 1920 but released a year later, The High Sign is Buster Keaton’s first film production as a solo performer, and is also one of his funniest. Keaton is a contract-killer hired to kill the town miser, August Nicklenurser. However Nicklenurser knows a good man when he sees one and hires Keaton as his personal bodyguard. The short’s climactic chase sequence sees Keaton eluding his bandit pursuers through windows and down trap-doors in a dizzying re-imagination of architectural navigation.
