Real craftsmanship doesn’t age and nowhere is this truer than in the films of Buster Keaton, where every pratfall is a marvel of precision engineering made to endure for generations. Though Buster didn’t have much of a childhood himself (he was too busy being tossed across stages all over America by his showfolk parents), he retains the ability to delight viewers both young and old with his physical derring-do and unchanging stoneface, somehow much funnier than any amount of mugging might be. So bring the family along, and watch built-to-last Buster go through the works without a scratch—or a smile.
