My name is Annie Claire Sawyer and two years ago I died. But in so many ways, that’s when my life began. In the company of horrors, I learnt about friendship and loyalty, sacrifice and courage. Humanity isn’t a species, it’s a state of mind. It can’t be defeated - it moves mountains, it saves souls. We were blessed as much as we were cursed. In this little enclave of the lost, I witnessed the very best of being human.
Because he was funny, because he wore a porkpie had, Keaton’s physical
skills are often undervalued … no silent star did more dangerous stunts
than Buster Keaton. Instead of using doubles, he himself doubled for his actors, doing their stunts as well as his own - Roger Ebert
All my life, I have been happiest when the folks watching me said to each other, “Look at the poor dope, will ya? - Buster Keaton
Happy 120th Birthday, Joseph Frank “Buster” Keaton (October 4, 1895 – February 1, 1966)
