A Vaudeville Genius...



Buster Keaton - the greatest actor, writer & director of all time.
I watch at least one of his movie everyday now - it's a ritual I haven't been able to break away from.

I guess it's a little bit like the Beatles vs The Stones, but I tend to like Chaplin a bit more. But yous is quite a healthy habit anyway.

I am not the biggest admirer of Charlie "Paedophile" Chaplin I must admit Major. I can't fault Keaton or any of his films, whereas I don't really rate Charlie.

The old Chaplin vs Keaton debate, eh? I could make it even more interesting and say that Harold Lloyd was better than both of them. ;)

Pedro said...

And then I would say that you are wrong because Lloyd clearly ripped off Chaplin's characters when he first started.
Let's play word-association, shall we?
Llyod (plagiarise)
Chaplin (paedophile)
Keaton (genius)

Word association never fails.
Keaton wins hands-down.

:D

why do u keep calling him a pedophile?

jack said...

He keeps saying it because Charles liked his girls to be aged around 16 years old, even if he was approaching his forties.

You Are Wrong said...

He was NOT a peadophile. I can't believe you would even call a comic legend that.

You are wrong is right! An adult with a penchant for adolescents is actually an ephebophile. Although comic genius has actually nothing to do with it either way!

At the same time, it is funny how people, in general, can never admit to their heroes having feet of clay!

Jeeeeeeesus - I was taking the fucking piss. Read this blog, do you ever come across anything remotely serious? I know the difference between Hebephilia, Pedophilia & Ephebophilia, I was just dicking about using the P-word. Christ!
