Inspired by the TCM channel

The General was on last night, followed by Our Hospitality, both silent films featuring the brilliant Buster Keaton. It had me looking up YouTube videos and I found a few fantastic ones set to more modern music.

This one's my favorite though I have yet to see Steamboat Jr. (I guess it's time for a trip to the library, they've got a really impressive collection of Buster Keaton flicks):

And ten points if you get the music. :D

P.S. Did you know that Buster Keaton did all of his own stunts? Engineered them, too! And that Jackie Chan cites Mr. Keaton as one of his biggest inspirations? It's easy to see, really.
