101 Buster Keatons
I am obsessed with this profile.
I wish the quality on this video was a little better but, either way, it’s an amazing example of how Jackie Chan was influenced by the major stunt performers and physical comedians of the silent era.
Some of the stunts we see Jackie do are literally lifted directly from other films. I had no idea that he’d “borrowed” so many.
He truly is the last of this type of performer. Surely. I can’t think of someone as close to people like Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin as Jackie.
