"Our Hospitality" is a sparkling comedy, included in our program to celebrate the work and contributions of Joe Roberts, a star of Silent Hall of Fame.
Three generations of the Keaton family played in the film: Buster Keaton's father Joe Keaton was the train engineer, Buster Keaton played Willie McKay and his infant son was baby Willie in the prologue.
Joe Roberts played his last role as Joseph Canfiled. He had a stroke during filming, but insisted on continuing work. He died shortly after the film was completed. This was the biggest role of his life, and he made a significant contribution to the film's tremendous success. Joe Roberts also partnered with Buster Keaton in 16 of his 19 short films as well as in "Three Ages".
The film is ranked number 28 in the list of The Top 100 Silent Era Films of the influential website Silent Era.
"Our Hospitality" enjoys a very strong 7.8 rating in IMDB.
