Chaplin once directed Keaton in one of his films, while Keaton never did accomplish any directing. Buster acted in films that portrayed more violence and physical comedy, while Chaplin stuck to his popular situational comedy routines. Buster's movies often did not follow a tight script, whereas Chaplin's movies had more of a plot, and he displayed a wide range of human emotions in his films.
