KIRKUS REVIEW

In an easy-going, modest autobiography, Buster Keaton, one of the ""greats"" of film history, tells of his boyhood and adult careers. A vaudeville star of his father's team, Keaton began as a child to excel as a professional performer. Affectionate reminiscences of the silent film era, the actual films and the people who made them, compose the bulk of this unpretentious book which concludes with his ascendance in recent years to the position of TV guest star. A warm memento of a vanishing breed, this warrants the attention of all to whom cinema is a vital area of creative entertainment.
