YMMV: Buster Keaton
- Broken Base: Fans and critics are divided as to whether sound killed Keaton's career. Many hated his lack of creative input (informed by MGM) and downplayed stunt acting, others thought his deadpan dialogue and verbal humour enhanced his personality and comedy.
- Vindicated by History: Happily, he even lived to see it. Though in tyical Buster style, he lamented that while it was nice it was still a "little too late" for him since he could have used the praise when he still had a chance to recover his career and make more films.
