A Buster Keaton Western? Sign me up! So we have our main man (Keaton) who isn't having much luck with city life, so he sells everything, takes a train out West, and decides to give the life of a farmhand a try. The opening title card really sums it: "Some people travel through life making friends where ever they go, while others... Just travel through life." This is more good stuff from the irresistible Buster Keaton. Silent comedies are inherently slapstick, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing, as Keaton knows how to make it charming. His interactions with the animals are really funny, but they are also sweet as well; his friendship that he shares with the cow is the driving force of the movie, which is the source of some of the biggest laughs here, and it all works because they have a good chemistry together, as odd as that may sound. There is some innovative camera work featured, specifically, the bull POV shot, which ends up being very memorable. What really stands out though is the finale, as is per usual in Buster Keaton movies; when everything goes wrong, that is when the movie magic is the most palpable. This is probably the lesser of the Keaton movies I have seen thus far, but even the worst Buster Keaton movie is better than 90% all comedies out there.
