Buster Keaton was so young looking! A far cry his wizened look in Sunset Blvd. a few decades later.

No huge laughs but it sure brought on a few smiles. Buster certainly was clever with the tools he had to work with in early cinema.

Elaine, I never get sick of Sunset Blvd. And that cameo with Buster as one of Desmond's card playing friends is classic.

RReynolds, If you get a chance check out The General or Sherlock Jr.

I didn't think I would be interested but I sat through The Navigator and thought it was a hoot. What is considered the best Buster Keaton movie?

Don, I believe most critics (and fans) believe THE GENERAL is his greatest movie. For me, It's SHERLOCK JR.
