Re: Caught on Camera - Keaton filming in NYC

As always, an interesting post John. BTW, speaking of the Criterion release of THE CAMERAMAN, I was informed by Glenn Mitchell that Criterion used the same version of his commentary track that TCM used on their earlier DVD release of the film, in other words, the edited version.
