TV Adventures Of Mr Pastry, The (ITV 1958, Richard Hearne, Buster Keaton) Published 2 years ago on September 26, 2016 In this one off comedy Mr Pastry took acting lessons from a charlatan posing as an acting teacher. Mr Pastry was keen to learn the American method style of acting whilst the Professor was keen to make some easy money. Intended as a series bringing together the legendary Buster Keaton with the well regarded UK slapsticker Richard Hearne in the form of his bumbling old man character Mr Pastry. Unfortunately Buster Keaton fell ill and returned back to the USA so the series never acheived fruition. Hearne was actually only in his mid thirties when he began playing the old man act. production details UK / ITV Network – ATV / 1×30 minute episode / Broadcast Saturday 21 June 1958 @ 6.00pm in black and white Director: Ralph Smart cast RICHARD HEARNE as Mr Pastry BUSTER KEATON as Professor PEGGY MOUNT as Landlady JOHN GATRELL as Stage Manager RUDOLF OFFENBACH as Signor Frascatti HAROLD BRYDE as Kid LIZA LEE as Madame Lolla Borgia IAN WALLACE as The Prisoner ATVBuster KeatonComedyITVPeggy MountRalph SmartRichard HearneTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes3 hours ago Miracle Workers: 12 Days (TBS Tues 26 Feb 2019) 12 Days: A troublesome human complicates Craig and Eliza’s plan, while Sanjay attempts to burnish his credentials.
