RIP Buster Keaton | October 4, 1895 – February 1, 1966

"It is Keaton’s genius as an actor to keep a face so nearly deadpan and yet render it, by subtle inflections, so vividly expressive of inner life. His large deep eyes are the most eloquent feature; with merely a stare he can convey a wide range of emotions, from longing to mistrust, from puzzlement to sorrow." - Gilberto Perez

“Keaton was beyond all praise… a very great artist, and one of the most beautiful men I ever saw on the screen. He was also a superb director. In the last analysis, nobody came near him. Keaton, one of the greats!” - Orson Welles

"The greatest of the silent clowns is Buster Keaton. In an extraordinary period from 1920 to 1929, he worked without interruption on a series of films that make him, arguably, the greatest actor-director in the history of the movies." - Roger Ebert

"I saw this angel with a white face and these beautiful eyes. I knew this was something special. It was the first time I saw Keaton. He wore a flat pancake of a hat, and I just couldn’t believe the man’s grace. Keaton left a great legacy for all comedy filmmakers. He’s shown us how to do it." - Mel Brooks

"Just thinking about him moves me." — Werner Herzog

"Who would not wish to live a hundred years in a world where there are so many people who remember with gratitude and affection a little man with a frozen face who made them laugh a bit long years ago when they and I were both young?" - Buster Keaton
