A beautiful costume-period piece that takes place in Kentucky during the 1830s that tells the story of love and war between the Canfields and the McKays, as inspired by the feuding clans of the real life Hatfields and McCoys. Willie (Buster) takes a train that is an exact recreation of the famed "Stephenson Rocket" and there meets Virginia Canfield (Buster's real life wife). Though Willie's plan is to peaceably return to his Appalachian home, he discovers to his chagrin that the family of this lovely woman family has vowed to kill every member of his family! The dramatic waterfall rescue near the end is performed by Buster himself, and indeed resulted in his needing to be rescued himself from all the water he inhaled during the stunt. This special edition of Our Hospitality has been lovingly scored for sound by the great modern composer Carl Davis and is one-of-a-kind.

Our Hospitality is a 1923 American silent comedy film directed by and starring Buster Keaton. Released by Metro Pictures Corporation, it uses slapstick and situational comedy to tell the story of Willie McKay, caught in the middle of the infamous "Canfield-McKay" feud, an obvious satire of the real-life Hatfield-McCoy feud. It was a groundbreaking work for the comedy film genre, as Keaton included careful integration of gags into a dramatically coherent storyline, meticulous attention to period detail and beautiful cinematography and extensive location shooting, in considerable contrast to the era's other slapstick comedies.
