Day Dreams is a 1922 American short comedy film directed by and featuring Buster Keaton.[3] It is most famous for a scene where Keaton finds himself on the inside of a riverboat paddle wheel. It is a partially lost film[4] and available from public domain sources.[5]


Buster wants to marry a girl, but her father disapproves. Therefore Keaton vows he will go the city and get a job, or commit suicide. He takes several jobs (janitor, employee in an animal hospital, street cleaner, extra in a theatrical play,...) which all disastrously go wrong. In the final scenes he gets stuck inside a riverboat paddle wheel, where he has to run to get out of it. In the end he returns to his girlfriend's father, but since he failed in every way he is given a gun to shoot himself. Buster however manages to miss himself and is therefore kicked out the window by the girl's father.[6]



Filmed, in part, in San Francisco,[8] Oakland,[9] and Los Angeles.[10][11]
