Been spending some time watching Buster Keaton movies and sketching (all for an upcoming book which I'll talk more about soon). I'm starting at the beginning with the shorts he made with Roscoe Arbuckle. Great, funny stuff. If you were ever curious about what Coney Island was like in 1918, Arbuckle & Keaton, Vol 2 from Kino DVD is the place to go.
Norma Desmond was right. They really did have faces then.
