Summary
This collection includes highlights of home movie footage of Keaton in Paris and on a movie set, scenes from a never-completed Cinemascope musical, excerpts from the rare TV series "Life with Buster Keaton," his first dramatic role, two 1930s shorts, television commercials, excerpts from his television appearance on "This is your life," and a newly-restored 1921 short. Film historian John Bengtson prepared an interactive tour of locations where Keaton's films were shot. An extensive photo gallery reveals family snapshots, images from Keaton's vaudeville years, fascinating behind-the-scenes stills, and more
