About this product
- DescriptionBuster Keaton is remembered today as one of the most invative and hilarious comedians of the silent movie era, considered w to be the equal to Charlie Chaplin and Harold Lloyd. Starting his career as a child in vaudeville with his parents in a violent, kckabout comedy act kwn as The Three Keatons, Buster - so called because he could take a fall without getting hurt - was a seasoned stage professional by the time of his film debut with Roscoe Fatty Arbuckle in 1917 at only 21 years old. Keaton's soaring success in motion pictures lasted 15 years until a devastating crash brought on by personal troubles, alcoholism and the advent of sound pictures. By 1932, Buster had become nearly unemployable. The true story of how he bounced back to become an icon in film history is the beautifully written and thoroughly researched tale lovingly crafted in Buster Keaton: The Persistence of Comedy by film analyst and writer, Imogen Sara Smith.
