Late in life, Buster Keaton appeared in "The Railrodder" (1965), a National Film Board of Canada-produced silent comedy/travelogue short following the comic legend on a hapless coast-to-coast ride on a motorized handcar.

Then, made to mark the Canadian centennial, the Oscar-nominated "Helicopter Canada" offers an eye-in-the-sky survey of the nation's landscapes and landmarks as well as current events, including a walk-on by The Beatles. 105 min.
