Fall: A Tribute to Buster Keaton

It’s “down time” again.  Fifteen essays in fifteen days may be easy for some, but not for me!

The next blog series will begin on December 25, with a 12-days-of-Christmas marathon focused on Christina Rossetti’s poem “In the Bleak Midwinter.”  (Yes, I promised a mid-December series on Kihachiro Kawamoto but I’m postponing that until mid-January.)

In the meantime, I highly recommend Kevin Lee’s and Dana Stevens’ Fall, an awesome video tribute to Buster Keaton.  I particular love the clips from Seven Chances (1925), with Buster and boulders tumbling down a mountain.

Note to self:  Must do a Keaton blog series.  When I get to it, it will most likely be on Sherlock Jr. (1924), one of my all-time favorite movies.
