DIRECTOR: BUSTER KEATON
CAST: BUSTER KEATON, MARGARET LEAHY, WALLACE BEERY
In the Stone Age, the Roman Empire, and the hectic modern world of the Roaring Twenties, the same old Buster tries to win the same woman away from the same boorish brute, played by Wallace Beery. The intercut, tripartite structure worked as a parody of D.W. Griffith’s Intolerance, but was also a way to test if short film fixture Keaton could sustain himself at feature length (And woo, boy, could he ever).
Three Ages is screening as part of the series: Buster Keaton
