Read in January, 1974

Another tragic story of a unique American genius discarded by the guardians of popular culture, after he had given his life and made them a ton of money. Sound melodramatic? Well, Buster's story, as told by Blesh, is that. There's redemption, too, just in the nick of time. There are great stories in this book and portraits of American vaudeville and early Hollywood that can be found nowhere else. Blesh relied on many, many interviews with Keaton, making this almost an autobiography.
