Summary
"The silent screen's "Great Stone Face," and arguably its most prodigious comedian, Buster Keaton is famous for films such as The General and The Navigator. With compassion and accuracy, Dardis traces both the development and the decline of this great performer, from his childhood in vaudeville to his glory days as a silent screen star and MGM contract actor, his descent into alcoholism, and his twilight years as a nearly forgotten relic of the era."--Jacket
