    The Cameraman (Rough Draft) The Cameraman (1928), an MGM Buster Keaton feature, is one of the last truly great feature films of the silent era. From the artistic balance it finds between the simplicity of an all-too-familiar storyline and the complexity of technique and cinematography, to the very-entertaining and captivating performances of its actors, the film that was nearly lost to the annals of motion-picture history is a multi-faceted gem that is joyous to watch. Simplicity is one of the big

    from politicians, intellectuals, and the media is that independence is passé, that we've reached a new age of "interdependence." We hear demands for mandatory "volunteering" to serve others, for sacrifice to the nation. We hear demands from trust-busters that successful companies be punished for being "greedy" and not serving society. But this is not the message of America. It is the direct opposite of why America became a beacon of hope for the truly oppressed throughout the world. They have come

    protest "Buster is real. I saw him. I felt him. He's real!" "He was real." My mom says. "I don't believe you, I... I..." I give up on trying to convince them when I remember my arm. "My arm! Yes, may arm!" I think to myself. Buster's bite mark on my arm is irefutable avidence of his existence and, furthermore, my sanity. They will have to believe me then!
