Buster Keaton TV Commercials

His film career as a performer was hit & miss by the fifties but silent film genius Buster Keaton appeared in dozens of commercials in the 1950s and 1960s. The stone faced comic pitched everything from airlines to candy, from Ford Vans to Alka-Seltzer. Keaton has 2 stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, one for films one for TV.

Buster Keaton did a series of spots for Northwest Orient Airlines



A number of Alka-Seltzer commercials, late-1950s advertising at its best.



Absolutely brilliant ad for Simon Pure Beer, a sight gag worthy of this comedic great.



This one for Ford was filmed shortly before Buster Keaton died in 1966.
