The finest physical comedian, bar none, in the history of the cinema. No CGI. He broke his neck doing the water tower stunt, but he didn’t discover it until decades later when he complained of severe headaches, and X-rays revealed broken neck vertebrae. Buster Keaton.
My favorite is the newspaper gag. What’s yours?
I love Buster Keaton, and am grateful for this series of clips which capture his genius.
