Seven Chances

Seven Chances is a 1925 Buster Keaton silent color film. Jean Arthur is also in this movie. The subject seems strangely timely. Wikipedia describes the plot:
The story tells of Jimmy Shannon (Buster Keaton ), a financial broker who's nearly bankrupt...
Keaton gets lucky in being left a fortune by a rich relative. Our nearly bankrupt financial wizards want Uncle Sam to play the part of the rich relative.

I think this one is cute.

Youtube has it online in 6 sections. part 1:

part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, part 6

The New York Times reviews it, as does DVDTalk. Neither of those 2 reviews is particularly positive. compares it favorably to the 2000 remake. Filmsquish likes it.
