Buster Keaton disappears

"And Houdini said, 'That was sure a buster.'"
Here are some amazing stunts from Buster Keaton. Best of all, there's an eye popping stunt at 4:52 where he dives into another person's body and disappears!

In the stunt where he fell from the water tower, he broke bones in his shoulder and neck; he didn't find out about them until years later.

I've seen a video of a performer who re created the keaton 'penetration/vanish' in a live theater setting.

not cyril. it was a musician who commissioned the illusion. Don't know the name. the person who built it showed the video to me.
