Keaton Speaks!

Slapstick Festival 2024


Please note: This event took place in Feb 2024

Silent comedy superstar Buster Keaton continued working long after sound was added to pictures.

At this event, Keaton researcher Polly Rose focuses on three films exemplifying the best of Keaton’s speaking roles – two in acclaimed comedy shorts from the 1930s, the third as the lead in a British television drama from 1954.

The choices include Grand Slam Opera, featuring Buster’s dance homage to Fred Astaire, described by Film Daily on its release as “a laugh riot – easily the best comedy Keaton has ever delivered!”
