Buster Keaton Page Up on Ultimate Movie Rankings

Recommended Posts

http://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/buster-keaton-movies/

 

ClassicMovieRankings has now completed his Ultimate Movie Rankings page on AFI legend Buster Keaton.

 

I see that he has not yet published a link on this, so I am starting a thread.

 

This completes the top 25 actors of AFI's greatest male movie stars and now he has only one female star to go to complete the whole 50: Mary Pickford.

 

Buster Keaton is my favourite silent movie star so I've been waiting for this one a long time.

Make that two fans for Buster being a "favorite silent movie star", GPF.

 

And besides, without Buster who would Woody Allen have had to steal stuff from I ask you?

I'd call it a tribute, not stealing.  Woody Allen has openly acknowledged Buster as an influence in a piece on TCM airing several years ago.  Since The Purple Rose of Cairo is one of my favorite movies, this led me to see Sherlock, Jr. in a local theater, whereupon I became a huge Keaton fan.  Up to that point, my knowledge of Keaton was pretty much limited to his later work which was all that was available to see on TV for many years.   His bit parts in '60s films didn't even hint at the genius which was evident in his silent work.
