The Railrodder( Visual )

5 editions published between 1965 and 2009 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As might be expected, the film is full of sight gags as Keaton putt-putts his way to British Columbia. Not a word is spoken throughout, and Keaton is as spry and ingenious at fetching laughs as he was in the days of the silent slapsticks
