Absolutely madly in love with this man. To read about him, his struggle with alcoholism, and his overall damn tragic career trajectory is heartbreaking. But then I watch The Scarecrow or One Week and remain utterly amazed at how devoted he was to his craft.
Also look at him. Look at him. Gorgeous. Chaplin is someone you want to pat on the head while heaping more food on his plate; Harold Lloyd is utterly charming as he toes the line between boyhood and manhood. But Keaton is otherworldly in appearance and in his stunts. I adore him and want to just embrace the screen when he's at his best and hold his hand when he's at his worst. He makes me feel and for that I thank him.
