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.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
