  1. Very thought provoking. Of course Keaton wasn’t “evil” – he was a man of his time and place and reflected the common beliefs and values of that time and place. I don’t blame him for his unthinking response to the beliefs that were taken for granted.

    • Right. It’s not about blame as much as it is about learning from old, often repeated mistakes. We can learn from these things and if we do so, it’s an homage to the art that got lost in these social trappings.
