The Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society will present silent funnyman Buster Keaton's classic "Go West," 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 13, at "Flickers at the Junction" (formerly "Friday Night Flickers").

The film will be shown in the historic Saugus Train Station in Heritage Junction, Newhall. Live accompaniment will be provided by 96-year-old Hollywood legend Bob Mitchell, the last of the silent era organists. Suggested donation is $5, which includes free popcorn.

Buster Keaton, "The Great Stoneface," made many of the most famous and lasting comedies of the silent era. In "Go West" Buster plays Friendless, who comes west to seek his fortune. Once here, he tries his hand at bronco-busting, cattle-wrangling and dairy-farming, while forming a friendship with a cow named "Brown Eyes." Eventually he finds himself leading a herd through downtown Los Angeles.

The Saugus Train Station is located at Heritage Junction (adjacent to William S. Hart Park), at 24107 Newhall Avenue (formerly San Fernando Road), Newhall.

Gates open at 7 p.m. and seating is limited, so be sure to come early to see one of film's early silent superstars in action. (Program subject to change.)
