Imagine our delight when we spent some time searching one of our Style Idols, Buster Keaton‘s movies, and stumbled upon a great clip from a 1961 edition of Allen Funt’s CBS-TV show “Candid Camera.” with the Silent Film Slap-Stick legend himself!
Looking as good as the ‘forgotten’ screen idol ever has, even in camouflaged casual, the man rocks some grandpa glasses and a cool convertible trench! No matter how grand a joker the guy is, his chic gentlemanly nature always shines through any farce.
We love the shock and horror race across the faces of the teenage victims as Keaton pulls gag after gag at the counter of a dinner. These kids were clueless to the fact that a Hollywood Royal was not only sitting next to them, but was pulling a Betty White proportioned fast-one over their heads.
