So You Won't Squawk (1941) is the eighth short subject starring Buster Keaton made for Columbia Pictures.


Handyman Eddie (Buster Keaton) is mistaken for gangster Louie the Wolf (Eddie Fetherston). Louie encourages this deception and lets rival gangster Slugger McGraw (Matt McHugh) think Eddie is him. Slugger attempts to kill Eddie many times. After one final attempt a car chase ensues with Eddie throwing various items out the window to get the attention of the police.[1]



The chase scene is a reworking of Buster's final chase from his feature Le Roi des Champs-Élysées (1934).
