Lost Buster Keaton Footage

Slate has posted a video of lost Buster Keaton footage of a film titled The Blacksmith.

According to the brief article accompanying the video:

What makes this find so significant is that the lost version of The Blacksmith, which features French intertitles, is significantly different from the U.S. version. One sequence involving a horse is absent from the found footage, for example, though there are "never-before-seen gags" according to Variety, as well as a slightly altered ending, in the version Pena uncovered.
