  • 10. Combinations of Movement Steve McQueen Thanks to the fortuitous positioning of a window, McQueen survives Buster Keaton’s famous gag sequence in Steamboat Bill Jnr. (1928) where the side of a house collapses on top of the hapless Keaton again and again. Each time his survival is filmed from a different angle. But whereas Keaton ran through a windstorm in Steamboat, in Deadpan McQueen doesn’t move. Different views of the moment of impact are repeated and reversed to create a sequence where the final Moment is suspended. http://www.in.com/videos/watchvideo-steve-mcqueen-deadpan-1997-5703453.html A response to Buster Keaton’s falling house stunt: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zsyRhRR5Iu4Steven Pippin Kevin Batangan Harold Edgerton
