'Our Hospitality': Buster Keaton's Story About Ingrained Hostility

Keaton's scenario is a riff on the notorious real-life feud between the Hatfields and the McCoys, which has largely come down in history as fodder for rural comedies and cartoons. The prologue is a straightforward melodrama of two men killing each other in the senseless prolongation of the feud.
