Director: John Spotton
This film is a tribute to the most indestructible of slapstick comedians, presenting an informal view of Buster, and made while he was on location for The Railrodder. Living with his entourage of film-makers, he relaxes, yarns, and plots the next day's action with considerable flair, despite his years. He recalls some of the gags he employed in the past, and the film replays these old scenes.
In his pork-pie hat and baggy pants, the star shows little noticeable change in appearance or in the timing of his gags.
