"And Houdini said, 'That was sure a buster.'"
Here are some amazing stunts from Buster Keaton. Best of all, there's an eye popping stunt at 4:52 where he dives into another person's body and disappears!

Thanks for posting that, It was very good hearing Buster's insights as well.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.

I used to love watching Buster Keaton movies on Saturday mornings in the late 70's and early 80's. He was a genius. I never knew he had a Houdini connection. I doubt the world will ever again see entertainers of as high a quality as those who were raised in Vaudeville.

Thanks for posting the film.
For those of you that get TCM, Charlie Caplin’s Limelight is free on demand. There is a scene with Chaplin and Keaton together, which is the only time they both appeared on the same stage. According to the films host, Keaton was the only equal the Chaplin ever had.

The jumping through a body was done live at the Magic Castle by Criss Angel, jumping through Joaquin Ayala. It was filmed for Angel's Halloween special. I was there working, shooting still photos for his web site.

In "Steamboat Bill Jr." there are several stunts with an illusion base that is left standing on stage after the opera house blew away.
Less than 2% of reported UFO's turn out to be actual interplanetary vehicles.
