The Cameraman

Buster Keaton fell, so others could run.

One of the true founding fathers of motion picture comedy, a man who pulled off incredible visual gags at a time when green screen special effects didn’t exist, his work still impresses.

Doing his own stunts, Keaton dropped a house on himself — making sure to be positioned just right so his body would be where the window opening was on impact.

In this fast ‘n furious flick, his best moment comes at a pool, where he wages war with his own swimming suit.

Simple, yet hilarious, it captures a master at work.
