In The Works: Falling For Buster

The next video in the Silver 17 collection will be a compilation of Buster's cinematic pratfalls. Of course there is a lot to choose from. Some are balletic, some are incredible, some are silly, but they all are pretty darn funny.

Here's a little clip to whet your appetite. It's one of my favorites. I think I like it because it is so klutzy looking compared to most of his falls. It makes me laugh every time.
