Go West - 68 Min. B&W. Battling Butler - 85 min. Color Tinted.
Starring: Buster Keaton, Sally O'Neil, Howard Truesdale, Kathleen Myers
In Go West, Keaton plays an idealistic young man who rides the rails to a dude ranch, forms a sentimental attachment with an especially loveable cow, and, in the film's breathtaking climax, finds himself at the center of a cattle stampede through the streets of Los Angeles.
Based on the popular stage musical, Battling Butler stars Keaton as a pampered socialite who pretends to be a famed prizefighter in order to impress his girlfriend's bullying brothers. Once begun, however, the charade is not easy to end, and Butler - aided by his personal butler -must endure physical training, sparring and, unless he can stop it, a title bout with the "alabama murderer."
Special Features: Go West (1923, 12mins) - a western themed comedy short produced by Hal Roach
