Description

GO WEST Heeding the expansionist call of Horace Greeley, an idealistic young man (though aptly named “Friendless”) hops a freight train westward to meet his destiny, first in a teeming metropolis—where he is roundly trampled by rush-hour foot traffic—then into the ranch lands of Arizona. His attempts at bronco busting, cattle wrangling, and even dairy farming all end in hilarious failure, but when a trainload of steer are unleashed on the streets of Los Angeles, “Friendless” decides to undertake an unorthodox, single-handed round-up.

COLLEGE Keaton’s ode to varsity life demonstrates the performer’s trademark brand of visual comedy as well as his remarkable agility. He stars as Ronald, a small-town, academically-inclined freshman who applies his wiry physique to a series of sports, in order to impress a fellow student (Anne Cornwall). He seems destined for failure, but when Mary is accosted by an overzealous rival (Harold Goodwin), Ronald discovers within himself an untapped wellspring of athleticism.

Both films have been restored by Cineteca di Bologna at L’Immagine Ritrovata Laboratory in association with Cohen Film Collection.

Go West (1923), a Hal Roach comedy short performed entirely by trained monkeys. | “Buster Keaton: Screenwriter,” an hour-long audio recording of Keaton hashing out a story idea for TV’s Wagon Train in 1958.
