What's Opera, Doc? (1957)
Directed by Chuck Jones
Elmer Fudd is again hunting rabbits—only this time it's an opera. Wagner's Siegfried with Elmer as the titular hero and Bugs as Brunnhilde. They sing, they dance, they eat the scenery.

A Burlesque on Carmen (1915)
Directed by Charlie Chaplin
This is a parody of two Carmens: Bizet's opera and a movie (1915) starring Geraldine Farrar. Smugglers come ashore. Their leader sends the gypsy Carmen to lure Don Jose (called Darn Hosiery) away so they can get the contraband to town. There are grand swordfights, deaths, returns to life.

One Week (1920)
Directed by Buster Keaton, Edward F. Cline
Buster and Sybil exit a chapel as newlyweds. Among the gifts is a portable house you easily put together in one week. It doesn't help that Buster's rival for Sybil switches the numbers on the crates containing the house parts.

An Eastern Westerner (1920)
Directed by Harold Lloyd
A young New Yorker is the bane of his Christian parents' existence because of his constant carousing and partying at all hours. As such, his father decides to send the young man to live at the ranch of his uncle in Piute Pass in the wild west to get him away from the New York temptations that lead to this unwanted behavior.
