    Buster Keaton s life follows a similar curve to that of Charlie Chaplin, though never in quite the same way There is trauma and vaudeville in childhood, a few years of excelling in early films, until the artist is recognised and indulged.There follows a short period of Golden Era each is completely in charge of their own films, creating every aspect, and making films that are still regarded as masterpieces 80 years on.This period is exceptional, in both lives For In Our Hospitality, The Navig Buster Keaton s life follows a similar curve to that of Charlie Chaplin, though never in quite the same way There is trauma and vaudeville in childhood, a few years of excelling in early films, until the artist is recognised and indulged.There follows a short period of Golden Era each is completely in charge of their own films, creating every aspect, and making films that are still regarded as masterpieces 80 ye...

    This book sold me on the genius of Buser Keaton, which I had missed until then.Highly recommended.

    OK, I have finished reading every Buster Keaton bio And it turns out this is probably the best one Also, way to link up the fatalistic philosophies of Keaton and Werner Herzog Wheeeeeee

    Fascinating biography of my favorite film comedian Keaton s private life takes center stage, so if the reader doesn t like anecdotal gossip, they probably won t like this But it reads better than most Keaton booksand, of course, I love biographies with footnotes.
