THE FAMOUS CLIP With the FALLING HOUSE! ONE of the most dangerous stunts of filmhistory

"Steamboat Bill, Jr." (1928). The scene was performed with an actual full-weight wall. Half the crew walked off the set rather than participate in a stunt that would have killed Keaton if he had been slightly off position. Keaton himself, told the previous day that his studio was being shut down, was so devastated that he didn't care if the wall crushed him or not. The gag was previously used by Buster Keaton in "Back Stage" (1919) and "One Week" (1920) with smaller buildings. This was to be the ultimate version of the stunt. The comedian remarked later in his career, "I was mad at the time, or I would never have done the thing."
