Buster Keaton - Comic Genius (In-Person)
Join film historian Larry Wolff as he presents “The Great Stone Face” – Buster Keaton. An innovative, independent and a dedicated workhorse, Buster Keaton is one of the three giants of silent comedy (along with Charles Chaplin and Harold Lloyd) and is a comedic icon. You will learn about his triumphs and the tragedies that lead to his fall with the advent of sound. Some of Buster’s best silent shorts will be screened with this lecture and they are still amazing to this day! A memorabilia, book and autograph display will be included.
