Storyline

This is a costume-period piece set in 1830s Kentucky. The Canfields and the McKays are feuding clans (essentially the real life Hatfields and McCoys renamed). In New York Willie boards a train (an exact recreation of the original "Stephenson Rocket"); on board he meets Virginia Canfield (the actress is Buster's real life wife). The dramatic waterfall rescue near the end is performed by Buster himself. Written by Ed Stephan <stephan@cc.wwu.edu>

Great Movie!
6 May 2002 | by (Providence, RI) – See all my reviews

This was the first silent movie I had seen and I am eager to see more. This film had everything ... comedy, action, romance, great music, etc. It's still amazing that a film made over almost eighty-years ago is still better than 90% of the crap out there today.
