What! No DVD?

Trust me, we're better off without one.

You think anyone at the time noticed that Keaton seemed to be . . . in a haze . . . throughout that film?

Vanwall said...

Is this like a typical TinTan poster from Mexico - the one sheet is waaaay better than the flick?

Peter:

They probably will release all the Keaton/Durantes eventually; probably in a box set. But I wouldn't say it was the best way to honor Keaton's legacy.

Rob:

It does have that TinTan vibe, now that you mention it. Added to which, Buster looks a lot less booze-addled in the poster than he does in the film itself.

I have his MGM talkies on laserdisc.

Let's just say I'm glad they were on sale.

Poor Buster. Teamed up with Durante, I'd have stayed drunk too. Not that he needed any more excuses after losing the studio and the kids.
