Buster Keaton (1895-1966) is best remembered for his comic silent film roles, although he was also a successful film-maker.

Keaton was given the nickname ‘The Great Stone Face’ such was his ability to deliver hilarious performances with a deadpan expression.

He has since been named one of the greatest actors of all time. His comedy ‘The General’ was considered by Orson Welles to be the best movie ever made.
