A double bill of classic silent comedy. 'Our Hospitality' (1923) sees Buster Keaton as the last surviving member of the McCoy family, sending up the famous Hatfield-McCoy feud. Trouble is inevitable when he falls in love with a Hatfield (Natalie Talmadge, his real-life girlfriend). The film also features train and chase sequences, as well as the famous rescue atop a high waterfall. In 'Sherlock Junior' (1923) Keaton plays a projectionist who, accused of stealing a watch, dreams of becoming a detective and clearing his name. His thoughts are so powerful that he dreams himself right onto the screen, merging with the characters in the movies he shows.
