Chaplin was a genius, and Keaton was right there with him. Keaton is amazing when you watch all the physical things he did (Chaplin too, for that matter). And no special affects, other than perhaps speeding up the film, now and then.

Or playing the film backwards. Very sneaky.

Another thing that Keaton did, was transition successfully into "talkies"

Thankfully he had the voice for it--nice deep baritone. Reminds me of "Singin' in the Rain" when the industry was transitioning and many stars of the silents couldn't make it in talking movies because of bad voices.

Safety Last
I'm gonna have to add this one. Saw this film a few years ago and was suitably amazed. On par with Keaton for the dangerous physical stunts. If I remember correctly, Lloyd was missing a few fingers on one hand from an explosion mishap (stunt gone wrong) and wore gloves to hide it.

Thanks for the blurb on Harold Lloyd; I believe he did lose some fingers in a stunt!!

I had forgotten about his movies til reminded

I had also not seen all of Safety Last, but will certainly look for it on DVD to see what I had missed!!!
