Even though I'm a huge fan of Charles Chaplin, having seen all his full length directing efforts and many of his shorts, I must admit that I'm pretty much ignorant concerning Buster Keaton.

2020: Others (340 movies items)

"All'apice della carriera, Keaton dirige e interpreta questa commedia avventurosa ambientata ai tempi della Guerra Civile in cui riversa buona parte della propria passione ingegneristica. Assieme a lui, protagoniste sono infatti le locomotive che sfrecciano avanti e indietro tra le linee nordiste e sudiste: il protagonsita si trova per caso a sventare un complotto delle giacche blu e a conquistare il cuore della sua bella (un po' tonta, a dire la verità). Il nostro si esibisce in una serie di pe"
