Joseph Frank Buster Keaton, October 4, 1895 February 1, 1966, was an Academy Award-winning American comic actor and filmmaker. Best known for his silent films, his trademark was physical comedy with a stoic, deadpan expression on his face, earning him the nickname The Great Stone Face, referencing the Nathaniel Hawthorne story about the Old Man of the Mountain. He has also been called The Michelangelo of Silent Comedy. Keatons career as a performer and director is widely considered to be among the most innovative and important work in the history of cinema. He was recognized as the seventh greatest director of all time by Entertainment Weekly. We are pleased to present to you two of Buster Keatons lesser seen works The Railrodder and The Silent Partner.
