Reseña del editor:

"Silent Echoes: Discovering Early Hollywood Through the Films of Buster Keaton" is an epic look at a genius at work and at a Hollywood that no longer exists. Painstakingly researching the locations used in Buster Keaton s classic silent films, author John Bengtson combines images from Keaton s movies with archival photographs, historic maps, and scores of dramatic then and now photos. In the process, Bengtson reveals dozens of locations that lay undiscovered for nearly 80 years.
Part time machine, part detective story, "Silent Echoes" presents a fresh look at the matchless Keaton at work, as well as a captivating glimpse of Hollywood s most romantic era. More than a book for film, comedy, or history buffs, "Silent Echoes" appeals to anyone fascinated with solving puzzles or witnessing the awesome passage of time."

Críticas:

"What John Bengtson has done is nothing short of remarkable: a deft combination of detective work, archeology, and film buffery. I can't get enough of it!" --Leonard Maltin, film critic and historian

"This is a cinematic and photographic detective story of the first order. Time and artifice have been stripped away. What's left is a wonderful portrait of a city, its principal industry, and one of its best artists." --Ken Burns, author/director, "The Civil War, Baseball"

"""Bengtson captures the same eerie feeling I sometimes get when watching Keaton, who is the greatest of the silent clowns: The sense that Buster occupies not the fantasy world of many silent comedies, but a real world right down to the street from our own." --Roger Ebert, film critic and historian
