Buster Keaton – Football

www.youtube.com Buster Keaton in “Three ages”. The great Buster Keaton. The greatest physical comdedian in cinema history. Buster Keaton Performing Stunts. Three Ages is a 1923 black and white American feature-length silent comedy film starring comedian Buster Keaton and Wallace Beery. The first feature Keaton wrote, directed, produced, and starred in (unlike The Saphead (1920), in which he only acted), Keaton structured the film like three inter-cut short films. The structure also worked as a satire of DW Griffith’s 1916 film Intolerance. The film was shot in this manner as a kind of insurance for the Studio. While Keaton was a proven success in the short film medium, he had yet to prove himself as a feature-length star. Had the project flopped, the film would have been broken into three short films, each covering one of the ‘Ages.’

    Today’s players are too top heavy to do that kind of athleticism.

    lol love the “replay” – a bit of later 20th century fun, perfectly appropriate 🙂

    Keaton is a genius, him and Chaplin are probably comedy’s greatest makers.

    Fabulous! He was an incredibly gifted talent. The physical comedy is unmatched for such a star. Keaton did it ALL. actor, director, writer, stuntman.
