    Project Keaton Post #31 Buster Keaton Video Montage Submitted by … me! I put together this video montage of Buster’s work in honor of Project Keaton. It’s my first stab at video editing so it’s quite rough, a highly unworthy tribute to such a consummate filmmaker, but hopefully the thought behind it comes shining through.

    Buster Keaton and Marceline Day, The Cameraman, 1928

    “In the last scene the girl and I walked up Lower Broadway. She kept telling me how everybody admired me. Suddenly the windows on all floors of the skyscrapers we’re passing open, and ticker tape and confetti by the bale are thrown out. Believing the acclaim is for me, I bow and blow kisses at all my admirers. But the last shot of the picture reveals that the excited welcome is really for a man riding right behind us, a fellow named Lindbergh who had just made a solo flight over the Atlantic Ocean.”

“This shot is the most expensive shot in silent film history. It was filmed in a single take, that had to be perfect, with a real train and a ‘dummy’ engineer (notice the white arm hanging out the conductors window). Some of the locals who came to watch the filming, thought the dummy was a real person and screamed in horror; supposedly, one person even fainted.”
