Summary [Bell boy] Arbuckle and Keaton as bellboys at a small town hotel, which they eventually completely wreck. Features Arbuckle's classic "shaving routine," where he progressively turns a Rasputin-like character into General Grant, Abraham Lincoln and then into the Kaiser.
[Butcher boy] Contains Arbuckle's famous "knife juggling" bit, Keaton's first film appearance in his classic "can of molasses" routine, and Arbuckle romping around in drag at an all girl private school.
[Out West] Arbuckle's first attempt at movie parody, poking fun at the already cliched cowboy western. The film also contains some heavy racism.
[Moonshine] A parody of Arbuckle's own freewheeling comedy style, filled with inside jokes. After defeating the hillbilly mountaineers, Arbuckle and Keaton conclude the film with a stinging parody of rival Charlie Chaplin's "losing the girl" pathos-type endings.
[Hayseed] Notable for being the only Arbuckle Comique film in which Buster Keaton -- later known as "The Great Stone Face" -- does not either laugh or smile on screen. Also features the trick dance comedian John Coogan, child star Jackie Coogan's father.
