The Frozen North

Directed by Eddie Cline, Buster Keaton
Starring Bonnie Hill, Freeman Wood, Buster Keaton, Joe Roberts
Run Time 17 min

Buster Keaton uproariously lampoons the western melodramas of William S. Hart and the highly stylized and absurd conventions of Twenties Western epics. Buster finds himself in the frozen north, “last stop on the subway.”


Restored by Cineteca di Bologna at L'Immagine Ritrovata Laboratory in association with Cohen Film Collection.
