I embedded The Railrodder yesterday. The National Film Board of Canada shot a "making of" film during the production and it's a fascinating look at the man at work, almost the only glimpse we have of what went into his incredible stunts. Buster Keaton Rides Again is a little under an hour long and well worth your time.
--Look closely and you'll see the director occasionally taken aback by the audacity of some of the physical gags proposed by the then 69-year-old actor.
