Action Gags – Buster Keaton

Buster Keaton, gags, physical, humour, silent movies

 

 

(In the featured picture, Buster hitches a lift on a passing car, to escape the cops) 

Less than 9 minutes to watch – inventive active jokes – with commentary showing how the comedy was built up.  A master class in film humour and slapstick.

Interestingly, it traces Buster’s influence on the current generation of physical gag merchants – always good to go back in time, to see who originated the jokes.
