Buster Keaton

American comic actor, filmmaker, producer and writer.

On the other hand that kindly critic, the late James Agee, described my face as ranking "almost with Lincoln's as an early American archetype, it was haunting, handsome, almost beautiful." I can't imagine what the great rail splitter's reaction would have been to this, though I sure was pleased.More Buster Keaton quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
