Manic stunt work, elaborate sight gags and mind-boggling mechanical comedy are just some of Keaton's work featured in these movies. Known the world round as the 'Stone' face comedy actor, with charming moments of intimate humour flavoured with rich pathos, uniquely graceful and characteristically hilarious. 'That's Buster Keaton'
Battling Butler (1921) Keaton stars as Alfred Butler, a delicate man whose father decides to toughen him up by sending him to the country. There he is mistaken for a renowned boxer "Battling Butler". Rather than admit the truth he carries on with the deceit and embarks upon a rediculous training regime. Things are then complicated by the arrival of the true contender.
Frozen North (1922) Sight gags abound in this Keaton short, set in snow-covered wastes where he parodies movie legends William S. Hart and Eric Von Stronheim.
Haunted House (1921) A gang of counterfeiters are laundering counterfeit notes in the bank. When some are planted on Buster the bank teller, he makes a run for it and by chance finds himself in a haunted mansion which just happens to be full of booby-traps and owned by the counterfeiting gang.
