Buster Keaton was one of the greatest stars of the silent movie era, but these two short films were made many decades after his most famous films. In The Railroader, a silent comedy from 1966, he plays a man who walks across the floor of the Atlantic before riding Canada's railways on a tiny maintenance vehicle. The Silent Partner, a touching drama made for TV in 1955, has Keaton playing an old movie star sitting in a diner and watching clips from his old films shown on TV. It proves that Keaton was an excellent actor as well as a comic genius.
Essential introduction to silent comedy giant Buster Keaton, full of unbelievable stunts and endless slapstick, featuring eight of his short films.
