Star of the Month: Buster Keaton

It's quite rare that TCM honors a Star of the Month on the weekend, but this month, we have a star who did a lot of his work during the silent era. So, I suppose TCM decided to combine Silent Sunday Nights with the Star of the Month and bring us a bunch of Buster Keaton movies on all five Sunday nights in October. The salute kicks off with The General at 8:00 PM, which will be followed by a bunch of two-reelers. Back in the late teens and early 20s, actors made a lot of two-reelers.

There's one other feature which I've already blogged about, that being The Navigator at midnight. I don't think I've seen Our Hospitality (10:00 PM) before. And to be honest, I'm rather more looking forward to the shorts tonight.
