Buster Keaton delight for a snowy day

12 January 2012

They say our snow will turn to rain later on, but right now it’s perfect — just enough to feel snug and wintery. Enough to make me think that what we all need is 20 minutes of silent comedy — nay, not just any comedy, but the gymnastic antics of Buster Keaton. Top on the list of things to love about One Week (1920, in which he builds a house from a kit alongside his new bride) is the fact that she’s so game to participate in the manic house construction (and gymnastics), too. Cheers to Sybil Seely.

(Is it just me, or do those jaw-dropping scenes make your mouth open wide, and laugh out loud?)
