Class #156 Buster Keaton
Wednesday, October 23 from 10:30am-12:00pm
Best known for his silent films, Joseph Frank Keaton, known professionally as Buster Keaton, was an American actor, comedian, film director, producer, screenwriter, and stunt performer. His career declined soon after making silent films with a loss of artistic independence (the result of being hired by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer), his divorce, and discended into alcoholism. In the 1940s he revived his career as an honored comic performer, earning an Academy Honorary Award. In this class we will view and discuss some of his early silent films. Fee: $6.
