Good Night, Nurse! (1918)

US 26m, B&W, Silent
Director: Roscoe ‘Fatty’ Arbuckle; Cast: Roscoe ‘Fatty’ Arbuckle, Buster Keaton, Al St. John, Alice Lake

Good Night, Nurse (1918)Good Night, Nurse! is a chaotic three act slapstick comedy in which Arbuckle is admitted to the “No Hope Sanitarium” to cure his drinking problem. Spending much of his time attempting to avoid the doctors who want to operate, Arbuckle’s best moments are perhaps in the film’s opening reel when he simply attempts to light a match in the rain. Keaton’s most memorable scenes are his flirtatious smiles and grins at Arbuckle, who is of course, masquerading as a nurse (Klaus Ming March 2016).
