Buster Keaton’s Civil War December 9, 2007 2 comments Click here and enjoy. 2 comments… add one matthew mckeon December 9, 2007, 4:05 pm I loved that movie. Keaton used a network of narrow gauge tracks in the Oregon woods, laid down by timber companies. His soldier extras are members of the Oregon Nationa Guard. In terms of memory, the Civil War was roughly as distant to Keaton as World War II is to us. Reply Sarah December 13, 2007, 1:42 pm That is a fantastic movie. One of my favorite silents. The music in it is great too. Reply Leave a Comment Cancel Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Notify me of new posts by email.
