Battling Butler

Battling Butler

Based on a Broadway play, the Battling Butler revolves around a case of mistaken identity between two Alfred Butlers – one an effete millionaire (Keaton), the other the heavyweight champion of the world (Francis McDonald). Coincidence brings them to the same backwoods Kentucky neighborhood, where Butler-the-flop finds love with a mountain girl, but not before antagonizing Butler-the-brute into a Madison Square Garden grudge match.
