One Week (1920)
One Week (1920) is a silent comedy film directed by Buster Keaton and Eddie Cline. The film follows newlyweds, Sybil and Buster, as they embark on their honeymoon. Along the way, they encounter a variety of obstacles, including a rival suitor, a broken-down car, and a series of misadventures.
One Week is notable for its sexual moments, which were quite daring for its time. In one scene, Sybil and Buster are in a hotel room and Sybil is trying to get Buster to undress. She teases him by taking off her own clothes, and then hides under the bed. Buster eventually gives in and takes off his clothes, only to find Sybil has disappeared.
In another scene, Sybil and Buster are in a canoe and Sybil is trying to seduce Buster. She starts to take off her clothes, but Buster stops her and tells her to put them back on. This scene was particularly daring for its time, as it showed a woman trying to be sexually assertive.
The sexual moments in One Week are a testament to Buster Keaton's willingness to push the boundaries of comedy. While the film was made nearly a century ago, its sexual moments still feel daring and modern. It's a testament to Keaton's genius that he was able to make a film that was both funny and sexually charged.
