Buster Keaton in “The Railrodder”
As I big fan of both Buster Keaton and Canada, I have to love this NFB production from 1965. The National Film Board of Canada website describes “The Railrodder”:
A screen short starring Buster Keaton, this is one of the last films of the comedian’s long career. As “the railrodder” he crosses Canada from east to west on a railway track speeder. As might be expected, the film is full of sight gags as Keaton putt-putts his way to British Columbia. Not a word is spoken throughout, and Keaton is as spry and ingenious at fetching laughs as he was in the days of the silent slapsticks. Film without words.
Thanks to Klaus from Ming for pointing out this delightful short featuring late-life Buster Keaton. After you watch “The Railrodder,” make sure to check out the “Movie reviews in about 100 or words or less” at Ming!
