Buster Keaton is an icon of early silent film era. He was very adept at physical comedy while being a talented film writer and director as well. His films can still be seen on the big screen, and you can attend events such as Buster Keaton Film Festivals.

Watch for his movies, including Sherlock, Jr., One Week, The Three Ages, The Navigator and most definitely The General. These are from the 1920s.

Buster Keaton rocked his pork pie hat before Ed Norton on The Honeymooners or Bryan Cranston as Walter White on Breaking Bad wore theirs.
