Fans of The Artist may enjoy the antics of comedic film star Buster Keaton.

Raised performing vaudeville with his parents, Keaton's big break came in 1917 when he appeared in "Fatty" Arbuckle's The Butcher Boy. By the 1920s, Keaton had his own studio. Inspired by Mathew Brady's Civil War photographs, Keaton wrote and starred in The General - often considered the best film of its era.
