The Frozen North1922

Sorry. This film is not currently available.

  • 3.8
A parody of the Western melodramas of William S. Hart, THE FROZEN NORTH was filmed partly on location near Truckee, California, and the intertitles drew from Robert Service's "The Shooting of Dan McGrew." Charles Chaplin later used Truckee for his masterpiece THE GOLD RUSH and drew upon "McGrew" for his mock-serious narration to the 1952 re-issue version. In addition to the parody of Hart, Buster Keaton also does a wicked imitation of film director Erich von Stroheim.

"William S. Hart was an ideal performer for Keaton to send up. . . As the icing on the cake, Keaton’s stone face proved to be be ideal for reenacting Hart’s Wrath of God scowl." - Fritzi Kramer, moviessilently.com

Buster Keaton is a vitamin supplement for the Spirit. His movies replenish and revitalize us, and should be watched on a regular basis. Surreal absurdity, engineered and executed with mathematical precision. And the great stone face gazes upon it all with those huge eyes that ponder a conundrum called life.

It was a fun spoof, and appreciated especially when one thinks that the stunts are real, done by buster Keaton, himself.
