Talking Buster Keaton - The Podcast
Talking Buster Keaton examines the genius of one of cinema's greatest comic minds (and bodies). Each week, we discuss one of Keaton's films, and then continue the discussion with guest actors, authors, historians and other experts.
A giant of American comedy.
A performer of the impossible.
A filmmaker of grace and beauty.
A genius in slap shoes and a flat hat.
