In an unusual twist on the romantic comedy formula, Buster Keaton stars opposite an affectionate cow in the Western Comedy, Go West (1925). Friendless Homer Holiday drifts west eventually finding employment on the Thompson ranch. He soon befriends Brown Eyes, a cow that he bonds with after she saves his life. When Brown Eyes is included in a shipment of cattle bound for the slaughterhouse, Homer goes along in hopes of rescuing her. But when the herd escapes from the cattle cars, causing chaos through downtown L.A.; it is then up to Friendless to round them up and save the day. Look closely during the hilarious stampede scene to see Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle playing a part in drag. (USA, 1925, 68 min., NR, Silent with English intertitles | Dir. Buster Keaton)
