Storyline

Buster is the eldest son in a family of hillbillies who manage a hotel. When Ma announces that the bank is about to foreclose on the mortgage, Buster attempts to raise the necessary $350 by selling a trailer which was left behind by a former guest. Complications ensue when it is found that a pregnant cow has taken up residence in the trailer, but, eventually, Buster is able to relocate cow & calf, sell the trailer to a honeymooning couple, and save the hotel.

I'm inclined to agree with rpmathewson's review. No, it's not a good "Keaton" film, but I found it entirely entertaining. Probably it's greatest weakness is its strength: it's very, very short; therefore, Keaton does not have time to invest it with but a hint of his trademark mechanical and stunt gags, but then neither does it go on long enough to become tiresome. A couple of times I had to laugh, and it IS extremely interesting to see practically the whole Keaton family at one time (where was dad?). With Al St. John in the mix, it is incomprehensible that they didn't put in some acrobatics--I wonder why not? Even so, it's an agreeable enough little short subject, like something Keaton might have done on a TV stage.
