Our Hospitality (1923) 8mm/Musical Accompaniment | Berkeley Underground Films at the Tannery
A man returns to his Appalachian homestead. On the trip, he falls for a young woman. The only problem is her family has vowed to kill every member of his family.
This is the only film to feature three generations of Keatons. Buster’s father plays a train engineer while Buster’s infant son plays a baby version of Buster in the film’s prologue. Keaton’s wife Natalie was pregnant with their second child during filming, and late in the production she had to be filmed to hide her growing size.
