Uncredited Photographer Buster Keaton with His Bulldog 1928
“One who never smiled, carried a face as still and sad as a daguerreotype through some of the most preposterously ingenious and visually satisfying comedy ever invented. That was Buster Keaton.” James Agee, speaking of Buster Keaton in “Comedy’s Greatest Era,” LIFE magazine, 5 September 1949
“Oh, I like this one. One dog goes one way, the other dog goes the other way, and this guy’s sayin’, ‘Whaddaya want from me?’” - Tommy DeVito, Goodfellas
The best part of Goodfellas BY FAR.
The famous arrow scene near the end was in fact done with real arrows. That is, the arrows hitting the wooden planks were not done with special effects, but rather choreographed with archers. Mifune waves his arms to brush away the arrows sticking from the planks, indicating to them that he wanted to go in that particular direction. The real arrows were included to get Mifune’s facial expressions of real-life fear, which is exceptionally hard to imitate. Of course, the arrows that hit the Mifune character were bamboo fakes.
Throne of Blood (1957)
