Buster Keaton can impress a weary world with the vitally important fact that life, after all, is a foolishly inconsequential affair, wrote critic Robert Sherwood in 1918. A century later Keaton, with his darkly comic theater of the absurd, speaks to audiences like no other silent comedian. If you thought you knew Keaton—think again!
