Buster Keaton

American comic actor, filmmaker, producer and writer.
I gotta do some sad scenes. Why, I never tried to make anybody cry in my life! And I go `round all the time dolled up in kippie clothes-wear everything but a corset...can`t stub my toe in this picture nor anything! Just imagine having to play-act all the time without ever getting hit with anything!More Buster Keaton quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
From the time I was 7 or 8 years old, we were the roughest knockabout act that ever was in the history of the theater, not only in the United States but all over Europe as well. We used to get arrested every other week--that is, the old man would get arrested. The first crack out of the box here in New York state, the Keith office raised my age two years, because the original law said that no child under 5 could even look at the audience, let alone do anything. So they said I was 7. And the law read that a child can't do acrobatics, can't walk a wire, can't juggle--a lot of those things--but there was nothing said in the law that you can't kick him in the face or throw him through a piece of scenery. On that technicality, we were allowed to work, although we'd get called into court every other week, see.More Buster Keaton quotes [10/09/2012 01:10:08]
It was an event when you could get all three of them on the set at the same time. The minute you started a picture with the Marx brothers you hired three assistant directors. One for each Marx brother. You had two of 'em while you went to look for the third one and the first two would disappear.More Buster Keaton quotes [10/09/2012 12:10:24]
I was mad at the time, or I would never have done the thing.More Buster Keaton quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
No man can be a genius in slapshoes and a flat hat.More Buster Keaton quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
