Neighbors is a 1920 short comedy film. Written, directed and starring comedian Buster Keaton. The Romeo and Juliet story played out in a tenement neighborhood with Buster and Virginia's families hating each other over the fence separating their buildings. Buster Keaton is the touchstone silent film comic. Innovative, imaginative, and prolific, Keaton always delivered throughout a long career in Hollywood that spanned the silent era and early talkies. Here in Neighbors, Keaton plays a modern day Romeo whose Juliet lives next door. The parents don't approve and begin to feud; but this is all just a pretext for a showcase of hilarious pranks, stunts, and sight gags. Not utilizing Keaton's usual gadgetry, Neighbors is more of a physical stunt free-for-all that will leave any viewer gasping for air between belly laughs. One of Keaton's best.
