Keaton's brilliant parody of Westerns sees him tackle all the staples of the genre. Go West (1925) includes gunfights, cattle wrangling, high-speed train chases and dangerous lawmen, all portrayed with Keaton's characteristic deadpan daring. But the film's greatest achievment is balancing these farcical elements with a moving and heartfelt narrative.
Keaton stars as a New Yorker who has little luck at keeping a job in the city. He decides to move to the country and eventually finds his way to leading a herd of cattle to the West Coast.
Screens with the short film The Play House (1921), a technically-inventive marvel packed full of gags which harken back to Keaton's vaudeville origins.
