The Buster Keaton Story is a 1957 biopic, directed by Sidney Sheldon, about Buster Keaton, a comedian from the silent film era. The film reimagines the life of Buster Keaton (Donald O'Connor), the rambunctious comedian who is constantly being put back into place by his director, Kurt Bergner (Peter Lorre), and his conflicting love interests. Gloria Brent (Ann Blyth) and Peggy Courtney (Rhonda Fleming) play Buster Keaton's love interests, and throughout the movie, he is torn between the two. While the movie is loosely based on the life of Buster Keaton, it does in fact stray from the truth at times, and alter things, such as having his 3 wives in reality, being portrayed as a single character. The rest of the story focuses on the hardships of Buster Keaton, such as his drinking problem, which is factually noted. While not the most accurate depiction of Keaton's life, The Buster Keaton Story is an entertaining look at it.
