The Railrodder

In honour of Canada Day, embedded below is The Railrodder, a short film made by the National Film Board of Canada in 1965. It stars the great Buster Keaton in his last silent movie, and one of his final on-screen performances. He plays a British tourist who decides to see Canada and embarks on an unorthodox cross-country sightseeing trip. Full of Keaton's classic slapstick, it's a wonderful travelogue of our beautiful country, and how it looked nearly 50 year ago.
Happy Canada Day!
