    There are many amusing moments here (the bumpy train, the dangerous river ride, Keaton afraid of leaving his foes' house and be killed) and a good eye for props and elements (the dandy horse, the tunnel shaped like a train) that make this a funny, enjoyable comedy.

    Another top-notch Buster Keaton film, one that probably peaks too early as I thought the climactic chase, while very entertaining, sort of lacked that 'wow' factor that made Seven Chances and that films chase sequence so memorable. Not to say there aren't so ballsy stunts, because there are, but they're just not as memorable The story, unsurprisingly, is simple and, as always, effective. It tells the feud of these two families (think the Capulets and the Montagues in Romeo and Juliet) and how the love between Buster's character and Natalie's character puts an end to a senseless feud. The ending was actually quite sweet in seeing how the head of the family chooses to put aside his hatred for the sake of his daughter. Of course the film is still full with a lot of clever and inventive sight gags and set pieces. If there's anything where Buster is far and away better than his contemporaries is his incredible use of visual gags and wilder stunts. This definitely wouldn't be my favorite but it's still another great example of Keaton's greatness. Definitely a must-see for any hardcore Keaton fan.

    A man journeys to the South to claim his inheritance, but he falls in love with the daughter of a rival family along the way. One of the stunts during the third act is one of Keaton's most amazing physical achievements in a career of amazing physical achievements. Considering the time this film was made and the technology available, I am always in awe of Keaton's technical prowess no matter what film I'm watching. The story is a satire of Southern codes of honor, one of the first times I've seen Keaton criticizing Southern mores, and the result produces some madcap ridiculousness. Overall, Our Hospitality is funny, entertaining, and contains some vintage Keaton, a master of the silent medium.

    The story's so-so, but you don't watch Keaton for the story. The stunts and action are key here, and there's one sequence at a waterfall which would blow people away today, 90 years later.
