Classics Not Just for Kids


We finish off the Magical History Tour on the theme of "Choreography" with two brilliantly choreographed slapstick comedies by and with one of the giants of American comedy: Buster Keaton.
(Edward F. Cline, Buster Keaton, USA 1920, 8., 15. & 29.1.) House-building in one week—child’s play, according to the instructions included with the wedding present. Full of vigor, Buster and his new bride set to work. What follows is as much a circus as a grandiosely grotesque construction process.
(Buster Keaton, USA 1924, 8., 15. & 29.1.) Buster Keaton as projectionist and avid detective who dreams himself and his own yearnings into the films he projects. In this doubled imaginarium, he can not only eliminate his criminal rivals, but also scintillate with a cascade of hilarious gags and spectacular stunts. (mg)
