Beckett on Screen II

Following my post about Beckett's complete works I've decided to occasionally post filmed adaptations of Beckett's work available online, trying to find the best and most loyal adaptation for each work.
Film (2 parts)

Performed by Buster Keaton and directed by Alan Schneider (1964)

Beckett originally wanted Charlie Chaplin for the part; though there are some slight differences from the original script, Beckett approved them as he was on set at all times. Gilles Deleuze has called it "The greatest Irish film."
