    The Cameraman (MGM, 1928). Swedish One Sheet (27.5" X 38.5"). Of all the classic comedians ever to work in front of a camera, perhaps none has been as revered or as influential as the legendary Buster Keaton. Originally a vaudeville comedian, Keaton first worked in film with Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle. Quickly striking out on his own, Keaton made a name for himself in such classic pictures as "The Navigator," "Steamboat Bill Jr.," and "The General." "The Cameraman," represented here in a dynamic Swedish one sheet, is considered by many to be Keaton's last important film. The coming of sound changed the landscape of motion pictures for "The Great Stone Face," and not for the better. The latter part of his life was spent trying to recapture past glories before his death in 1966. This poster, with its strong graphic elements, perfectly captures the spirit of Keaton's best comedies. It has never been folded, and the only apparent flaw is a small tear on the left border, expertly repaired during the backing process. This is an exceptional poster from a great film, and deserves an honored place in your collection. Very Fine+ on Linen.
