The Keatons, four of them, combine to make this picture highly hilarious.
This is an unusual comedy picture, a novelty melange of dramatics, low comedy, laughs and thrills. Jean Havez has built up a comedy masterpiece about as serious a subject as a feud.
Buster's climactic rescue of his sweetheart from a waterfall is one of his most daringly acrobatic (and most celebrated) gags.
With this work, Keaton began to display a dramatic sense to complement his comic sensibility -- like The General, it is built with the integrity of a high-adventure story.
Our Hospitality combined a dead-serious dramatic plot, a feud in the 1830s modeled on the Hatfield-McCoy story, with a socially preposterous situation- without letting any daylight between the thrills and the laughs.
Three generations of Keatons are featured, from Joseph the elder to Buster's own son, while the period detail is at once comic and -- believe it -- totally accurate.
Buster Keaton's second feature as an independent is a gem.
Consistently hilarious, highly watchable Keaton classic.
I was just flaggergasted by the action.
Two great classic silent comedies
Keaton's first feature-length comedy is one of his best, a comic gem set against a backdrop of a Hatfield-McCoy style family feud.
This story of feuding families was [Keaton's] first feature-length masterpiece.
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.
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.
Keaton gets in the middle of a family feud, hilarity ensues.
In the Nineteenth Century, there is a feud between the McKay and Canfield families in the country of the United States of America. When John McKay is killed, his wife sends their one years old baby Willie to New York to be raised by her sister. Twenty years later, Willie McKay (Buster Keaton) returns to claim for his family state. Along the train travels, he meets a young lady and they fall in love for each other. However, she is the youngest Canfield and her family has not forgotten the quarrel against the McKays.
