The Keatons, four of them, combine to make this picture highly hilarious.

With this work, Keaton began to display a dramatic sense to complement his comic sensibility -- like The General, it is built with the integrity of a high-adventure story.

Consistently hilarious, highly watchable Keaton classic.

Variety Staff

This is an unusual comedy picture, a novelty melange of dramatics, low comedy, laughs and thrills. Jean Havez has built up a comedy masterpiece about as serious a subject as a feud.

Three generations of Keatons are featured, from Joseph the elder to Buster's own son, while the period detail is at once comic and -- believe it -- totally accurate.

Time Out

Buster's climactic rescue of his sweetheart from a waterfall is one of his most daringly acrobatic (and most celebrated) gags.

Keaton gets in the middle of a family feud, hilarity ensues.

Another top-notch Buster Keaton film, one that probably peaks too early as I thought the climactic chase, while very entertaining, sort of lacked that… More
