I can't help it, but 'The Paleface' is kind of boring Buster Keaton movie. It's definitely not bad film, but it was hard to stay interested throughout. The first part, where Indians have been robbed their land, and their chief issues an order to kill the first white man to enter the gates. Unaware of the danger, Buster Keaton who is on the hunt for the butterflies walks blissfully onto the Indian camp site and starts looking for the butterflies. He struts around like nothing is wrong, and when he suddenly sprints towards the gates, it's not because he finally realized the situation, he walked into, but he noticed another butterfly.
The other great scene is where he escapes from rivaling tribe over the bridge that has only dozen or so slats. Otherwise, pretty mediocre Keaton short, but it's worth to catch it if you have the chance, as it contains some nice and interesting moments.
