The Silent Partner - Buster Keaton
28 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

Stan Laurel was still alive when this aired in 1955. I bet he saw it. The director, George Marshall, was the cameraman on a number of Laurel and Hardy films, and Bert Jordan, who was Stan's favorite editor edited this made-for-TV episode of Screen Director's Playhouse. And of course all the episodes of the series including this one were filmed at The Hal Roach studios. So it must have been a homecoming of sorts for George Marshall and Bert Jordan.

After his problems with MGM in the early 30s Keaton was almost hired by Hal Roach to star in his own series of short comedies. Too bad. Buster Keaton's life might have been different had he worked for a studio that understood comedy. MGM sure did not. Keaton's MGM films were just awful. I am sure that if Keaton were still alive he would agree!
