the poor dancing girl she won't dance again



‘If I should die,’ said I to myself, ‘I have left no immortal work behind me - nothing to make my friends proud of my memory - but I have lov’d the principle of beauty in all things, and if I had had time I would have made myself remember’d.’ - John Keats

“Like so many Americans, she was trying to construct a life that made sense from things she found in gift shops.” - Kurt Vonnegut

Sherlock Jr’s “movie within a movie”: The scenery changes around Buster Keaton very quickly. He suddenly finds himself in a doorway to a garden, on a crowded city street to on top of a rock, etc. Keaton later recalled that his cameraman, Byron Houck, had used surveying instruments to position him and the camera at the exact correct distances and positions to give the illusion of continuity as the scenes changed. Long before CGI, Keaton created a vivid world with its own laws.
