I hope you enjoy it.
My passion for niche film styles and pioneering directors has recently been rekindled. If you think you’d enjoy reading about more of my favorite, I encourage you to check out a list of films I think my friends should see and probably haven’t.

By the way, if you’re curious about the stunts I reference in the presentation, here’s a terrific 2-minute tribute to him that features all of them, including “catching” a moving car and nearly getting crushed by a falling house facade. At the time of this posting I see that less than 200 people have watched this video. I encourage you to give it a look and uo that number. It’s the least we could do to reward its creator for this outstanding introduction to Keaton.
