Overview

This hastily assembled "feature" is comprised of several episodes of an early-1950s TV series starring Buster Keaton. One of the most important stepping stones in Keaton's miraculous career comeback was a live (as opposed to film) comedy series titled Life With Buster Keaton, produced in Los Angeles in 1949. For syndication purposes, the series was committed to film, losing most of its hilarious spontaneity in the process. Buster portrays an employee in a sporting-goods store who indulges in Walter Mittyesque daydreams at the drop of a pork-pie hat. The always reliable Iris Adrian proves an excellent foil for the antics of the nimble Mr. Keaton. Misadventures of Buster Keaton was largely written by longtime Keaton crony Clyde Bruckman, who indulges in his usual practice of lifting entire routines from earlier films.
