Jeff brown - Star athlete, who believed so much in exercise that he made many a girl walk home

College (1927)
Chosen by me from my stack of unwatched DVDs.

Another movie where Keaton acts like a arsehole (he's grossly condescending to everyone around him) and does the occasional clever pratfall.
It's all a bit dull really although has a couple of bonkers bits. One where he goes Blackface (even the African Americans in the film don't realise though they do get rather angry when his ruse is found out) to be a busboy The other the incredibly compressed 30 secs composing the rest of the two leads lives together right up to the grave.
