OUR HOSPITALITY -

Our Hospitality is a 1923 silent comedy directed by and starring Buster Keaton. The film uses slapstick and situational comedy to tell the story of Willie McKay, who gets caught in the middle of the infamous "Canfield"–"McKay" feud, an obvious satire of the real-life Hatfield McCoy feud..

It was 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". This was a contrast to the usual slapstick comedies of this era. Our Hospitality is a "silent film for which no apologies need be made to modern viewers” and Roger Ebert considered it Keaton's first masterpiece.
