The Paradox of Keaton the Minoring and Recurrent Functions of the Great Machines
Le paradoxe de Keaton : la fonction minorante et récurrente des grandes machines

Keaton sometimes passes directly from the great, real machine to its reproduction as toy, for example, at the end of The Blacksmith. [Deleuze, Cinema 1, 1986: 180c]

Il arrive à Keaton de passer directement de la grande machine réelle à sa reproduction comme jouet, par exemple à la fin de « Malec forgeron ». [Deleuze Cinéma 1, 1985: 241a]
