Our Hospitality (1923)
February 25th, 2024 – 2:00 pm
The Hollywood Theatre
4122 NE Sandy Blvd., Portland, OR
Hollywood organist Dean Lemire will be performing his original score on the Mighty Wurlitzer pipe organ.
Starring “the great Stoneface” Buster Keaton.
OUR HOSPITALITY was Buster Keaton’s second self-produced, full-length feature that was full of groundbreaking gags, including some of his most terrifying and precisely timed stunts ever filmed…which established him as the most athletic and stylistically daring of all the esteemed great silent comedians.
Keaton stars…as youthful dreamer Willie McKay, who travels westward on a rickety locomotive to claim his birthright, only to find that his inheritance is a shack and that the object of his affection (Keaton’s real-life wife, Natalie Talmadge) is the daughter of a man with whom his family has been engaged in a long, violent feud.
That waterfall swing and rescue of Talmadge was surely one of the greatest, most thrilling action scenes in cinema history in 1923 and still is today.” Adam Kempenaar – Filmspotting
