Keaton's "What No Beer?" Barrel Avalanche

PostThu Oct 19, 2017 10:54 pm

(1932), Buster's final MGM picture, contains a pure, elaborately staged “Keatonesque” moment, when Buster struggles with a truck load of beer barrels on a steep hill, recalling the avalanche scenes from his silent feature Seven Chances (1925).
