Buster Keaton, named the seventh greatest director of all time by Entertainment Weekly, was one of the most innovative cinematic artists in history. Here in The Playhouse, the genius of Keaton is fully demonstrated in this entrancing silent film. Keaton plays virtually all the characters, but the kicker is that he’s often on screen multiple times in one shot! The cinematic techniques were revolutionary, and still fascinating today as a look back. But beyond appreciating the movie making approaches, Keaton lights up the screen with nonstop gags. The Playhouse is all Buster Keaton, in more ways than one, and that’s a good thing.
