Go West / Battling Butler

 (1925-1926)

Go West / Battling Butler Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In Go West, Keaton plays an idealistic young man who rides the rails to a dude ranch, forms a sentimental attachment with an especially lovable cow, and, in the film's breathtaking climax, finds himself at the center of a cattle stampede through the streets of Los Angeles. Based on the popular stage musical, Battling Butler stars Keaton as a pampered socialite who pretends to be a famed prizefighter in order to impress his girlfriend's bullying brothers.

For more about Go West / Battling Butler and the Go West / Battling Butler Blu-ray release, see Go West / Battling Butler Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Go West / Battling Butler Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Restored from nitrate elements preserved by the Library of Congress, Go West and Battling Butler arrive on Blu-ray with striking 1080p/AVC-encoded transfers that instantly outdate previous DVD releases. If you've been following Kino's steady output of Keaton films over the past year and a half, you'll know exactly what to expect here—a faithful-to-source picture, untouched by harsh digital restoration attempts, noise reduction, or edge enhancement, and unblemished by heavy compression or other encode issues. In both films, there's an expected level of age-related wear and tear—frequent scratches and white specks, light brightness flickering, mild staining, and some warping—but nothing out of the ordinary. After all, these films are quickly approaching the ninety-year-old mark, and film deterioration has taken its irreversible toll. As an experiment, I'd love to see what Criterion would do with these source materials, but I'm more than happy with Kino's presentation. Clarity is markedly improved over standard definition releases—you'll notice textures and details that would be impossible to see before—and it's clear that every attempt has been made to give a natural looking black and white gradient, taking into account the fact that some of the footage has inevitable become a bit washed out with age. Blacks are plenty deep, whites are bright without looking blown out, and contrast—with the exception of certain scenes—seems to be right where it needs to be. Go West is presented in pure black and white, while Battling Butler has a light sepia toning. Both look wonderful.


Go West / Battling Butler Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Kino has previously loaded up many of the Keaton releases with various commissioned and archival score options, but for Go West and Battling Butler you'll only find a single track each, the former by Eric Beheim and latter by Robert Israel, both presented in uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0. The scores suit their respective films well— they're complementary rather than overpowering—and the orchestral, appropriately old-timey music is decently rich and dynamic. The only oddity I noticed was that in Go West, some of the "sound effect" elements of the score—like pounding drums when Keaton is buried in barrels on the train—are accompanied by an audible hiss that cuts out as soon as the effect is over. This happens several times, and I'm not sure why it wasn't addressed when the audio for this disc was being mastered. Still, it's not terribly distracting—more a temporary irk than anything.
