TCM just had a Buster Keaton marathon, and I am delighted by it. I haven’t watched his films in a good, long while. I always thought his films were funny and obviously entertaining, but watching them now, I’m really starting to appreciate how he accomplished the things he was able to pull off.
Do yourself a favor and check out some of his films.
Sherlock, Jr. is a personal favorite. There’s hardly a slow spot within the film. The General is another one, probably more popular. Some of the shit he did was insane.
Read up on him and the things he did.
