Keep On Keaton On

     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.

That Nat. Film Board doc. was a staple of noon-hour film showings at lunch hour all across western Canada high schools in the 'sixties (yes, I was a member of the film club)
