Go West (1925)
Deadpan comic Buster Keaton plays Friendless, a hapless Midwesterner trying to make it on a ranch, with Brown Eyes the cow as his only true companion. This masterpiece of pathos also features Keaton’s classic sequence of cattle stampeding through the streets of Los Angeles: “I actually turned ‘em loose . . . and brought ‘em up Seventh Street to Broadway . . . 300 head of steers up that street.”
Directed by Buster Keaton | Starring Buster Keaton, Howard Truesdale, and Kathleen Myers | Screened in 35mm courtesy of the Academy Film Archive | With live musical accompaniment by Cliff Retallick
