The book is OK, but not something that a Keaton fan should feel is missing from their collection if they don't have it.
The only other time I've seen it was in the movie "Benny & Joon", in a short scene on a train. Johnny Depp, whose character imitates Buster Keaton, is reading it.
Written by a Frenchman, the text is adulatory and pretty existential, but it does point out in a cogent way that BK was one of the sole comedians of any age, gender or style to possess bona fide sex appeal.
The photos are the bulk of this large book, and the reason why collectors would want it in the first place. Beautifully reproduced, of satisfying size and resolution, the pictures in The Look of Buster Keaton constitute the best collection in one volume of rare studio shots like Hurrell's glamour photo of Buster, stills from various films, and family photos not often seen.
For an in-depth discussion of Buster Keaton's importance as an artist, his massive influence on Europeans, and the stunning array of photographs it contains, this book cannot be beaten.
