1965 Buster Keaton in "The Railrodder"

Just happened across this in my wanderings and at first thought it was a put on but it turned out to be one of the last short movies Buster Keaton did......and in color too. Not his best but not too bad with some great scenery shots.

I rather liked it actually. It must have been one of his last films judging from the 1960's cars in the background. Clearly done to showcase Canada's fabulous scenic attributes, with a host of comedic bits thrown in to give it something of a "plot".

Pretty cool I'd say!!!
