Number, Please?

Number, Please? ★★★★

Our Boy stars in a somewhat Keatonesque tale of a luckless young man trying to stave off heartache at an amusement park, then seeking to win her back from her tall brute boyfriend. Feels a little stretched (lol) even at 26 minutes, but I'm giving it a robust four-star rating because A: It's a silent slapstick short set at an amusement park, B: The surreal late-film twist on the familiar "two kids stacking themselves in a trench coat to disguise themselves as an adult" gag, and C: That ending!
