I’m not sentimental by nature. Sure I miss the Keystone Cops, and Mack Sennett, and Stan and Oliver and the rest. But I don’t moon over the past. I don’t have time. One Easter Sunday I went to a party at Mary Pickford’s house. Everybody from silent films was there. I tried to have fun, but I discovered we had nothing to talk about. I like The Beatles, for instance, and some of them had never even heard a Beatles record. They haven’t kept up with the times.
- Buster Keaton, 1965
