The Three Ages

Eddie Cline

Do we experience love the same way at different times in history? Buster Keaton answers this question the light way. He shows us love in three ages: prehistoric times, Ancient Rome and the roaring 20’s. The expression of (or rather lack thereof…) romantic feelings result in a tornado of events. We meet the very first lovers and rivals of human history, and can admire a delicate and poetic Buster Keaton facing the muscleman Wallace Beery.
