I'm just reviewing a sketch featuring Buster Keaton on this comment of "The Ken Murray Show"
The molasses sketch that I just mentioned on my comment on "The Ed Wynn Show" was reprised with one of those sketch's participants-Buster Keaton-once again playing the customer who puts his quarter in the bucket before the aforementioned product gets put in that bucket. The other participant was a former silent comedy supporting character that I didn't recognize either by his face or the name host Ken Murray mentioned. Unlike the one on Ed Wynn's show, there were no cue cards so the whole thing was in pantomime. Also unlike the Wynn show, there were no extras so it's just Buster and the older guy. In the booklet for the DVD collection "Industrial Strength Keaton" that I watched this on, the writer claimed the final moments of this version was lost but it ended the same as the Ed Wynn one so I don't know what he was talking about. Anyway, it wasn't as funny as the Wynn one but maybe I was just a little bored since I now knew the outcome. But it's worth a look anyway if you're a Keaton fan like me...
