The Railrodder

The Railrodder

| 24 min

Ce court métrage de fiction est l’un des derniers films de la très longue carrière du comédien Buster Keaton. Dans The Railrodder, celui-ci traverse le Canada d’est en ouest à bord d’une draisine. Faisant preuve de son sens du burlesque légendaire, Keaton se rend ainsi jusqu’en Colombie-Britannique, nous montrant au passage des scènes typiquement canadiennes. Film sans paroles.
