Joseph Frank "Buster" Keaton (October 4, 1895 – February 1, 1966)

Keaton first appeared on stage alongside his parents in The Three
Keatons
at age three. The acts they did often involved his father
throwing him around the stage and doing numerous trick falls. His
parents were questioned by the authorities about allegations of child
abuse but he could always prove he wasn’t actually being hurt. He took
on his legendary deadpan after realizing that his gags got less of a laugh
if he smiled and was soon given the nickname The Great Stone Face.
