Buster Keaton: Genius in Slapshoes

Biography: Buster Keaton: Genius in Slapshoes (1995)

The legendary Buster Keaton is the subject of this episode, which covers his ground-breaking work in silent cinema and how it all fell apart when he lost his independence and went to MGM where he was soon becoming an alcoholic and involved in countless scandals.

Dick Van Dyke, James Karen, Richard Lewis and author Jeffrey Vance are among the people interviewed here as they discuss the work of Keaton as well as the various hard times that he fell on before finally getting back into the spotlight. If you're a fan of Keaton you'll certainly enjoy this episode as it's certainly well-produced and it does a very good job at talking about what made Keaton special.

As with many documentaries, this one here lasts for fifty-minutes and the final three decades of Keaton's life are crammed into the final seven-minutes, which obviously gives the film a very rushed feel. Still, if you're unfamiliar with Keaton then this is a great way to see some nice film clips as well as learn about his life.
