Keystone Hotel (1935) is a 2-reel comedy short subject, directed by Ralph Staub. Although evidently unconnected with Mack Sennett himself, the film serves as a good-humored reunion of many of Sennett's former comedy personalities.
The story follows the arrival of the cross-eyed Count Drewa Blank (Ben Turpin) at a downtown hotel, to judge a beauty contest.
While downstairs various parties try to sway the Count's decision, the house detective investigates shenanigans upstairs, some involving a vibrating exercise machine. The Count's mistaken choice of the winner leads to a thrown pie, then a general pie fight, then the summoning of the Keystone Kops.
