Best slapstick films

Add a list or tag with showdown:slapstick

June 16 is officially Buster Keaton Day in Los Angeles, as good a time as any for a Showdown that celebrates the very best of slapstick cinema. Whether silent film or talkies, we want your top 10 movies filled with pratfalls, people hitting each other for comic effect, and other cruel and unusual punishments in the name of physical comedy. We are talking acrobatic stunts, impeccable timing, mortal danger, repetitive gags, and deep human embarrassment—all for our enjoyment. Safety last!
