Thursday’s film in my “College Daze” series at the Ontario library (a.k.a. the Ovitt Family Community Whatchamacallit) sums up the series in its one-word title: “College.”

This 1927 silent comedy stars Buster Keaton. The screening begins at 6:30 p.m. sharp in the community room of the library, 215 E. C St. And yes, it’s free.

Keaton plays a scholarly freshman who decides to pursue sports to impress a female student. (Here’s the Wikipedia entry on the movie.) A sequence in which he tries and fails at various track and field sports in succession is especially funny. Here’s one example via YouTube:
