The great comic Buster Keaton provides three comedic love stories–one each in the Stone Age, Roman Empire, and the 1920s. In all three, the roles of the boy (Keaton) , the girl (Margaret Leahy), and the villain (Wallace Beery) (who also is after the girl) are played by the same actors. A good silent film.
