Buster Keaton, the original parkourist

(5:49) American actor and director Buster Keaton (1895 - 1966) came from a family of vaudeville performers, and earned his nickname when he took a tumble down some stairs as a toddler while Harry Houdini was visiting. After seeing the boy get up completely unhurt, Houdini said, "That was a real buster!" Back in those days, "buster" was any spill or fall that had potential for injury.
