Like his 1926 film THE GENERAL, this elaborate historical comedy broadened the boundaries of slapstick and proved that Keaton was not just a comedian, he was an artist. Keaton stars as youthful dreamer Willie McKay, who travels westward on a rickety locomotive to claim his birthright only to find that his inheritance is a shack. He learns that the object of his affection (Keaton’s real-life wife Natalie Talmadge) is the daughter of a man with whom his family has been engaged in a long, violent feud. McKay’s personal struggles are punctuated by brilliant slapstick set pieces that involve an exploding dam, raging waterfalls and a primitive steam engine. This edition of OUR HOSPITALITY features a score compiled by Donald Hunsberger.

The greatest railroad ever made in a movie. A priceless movie. Buster Keaton is truly a genius.
