5 Buster Keaton Shorts
Keaton began his movie career working in a series of comic shorts with the then popular Fatty Arbuckle. (Isn’t it funny just thinking about the two of them standing side by side?) Starting in 1920, after the scandal that ruined Arbuckle’s career, Buster made a series of short films for the Comique Film Corporation. Buster co-directed and co-wrote these films (usually along with Eddie Cline). Taking a look at this series of shorts, we can see a nascent Buster Keaton, not quite in the full flower of the talents that will be demonstrated in his later feature films, but getting there.
