Buster Keaton, Hollywood 1963

Here is Buster Keaton at age 67 holding a portrait of Keaton from a vaudeville act; the comedic maestro will pass away at age 70 of lung cancer.
Orson Welles believed  Keaton's silent film The General "the greatest comedy ever made, the greatest Civil War film ever made, and perhaps the greatest film ever made."
