Keaton stars as a man who just stepped off the last stop on the sub-way and finds himself in an unfriendly frontier town, setting his sights on a hirl who is already taken.

A good 3 years before Chaplinís immortal The Gold Rush, Keaton lampoons the western movies made during the early twenties.
Like a good many of Keatonís films during this period, this is highly inventive, visual comedy and a technically, dramatically interesting film (the ending, for instance, allows him to explore the blurring of reality and film, which he would exploit in his later feature film 'Sherlock Junior').
Although not side-splitting, the film has some amusing moments; the casino hold-up, Keaton shooting the wrong adulterous couple and the fishing with an Eskimo.
The 20 minute running time flies by without one hesitation. Cameraman Lessley deserves mention for his crisp photography.
