An outlet for all things Keaton!
The ravings of a die-hard Busterphile, silent film maven, and mental time-traveler. Just spreading the Busterness across cyberspace and looking forward to a little dinner and a show!
From time to time, you'll find a few other things on my blog, like Boardwalk Empire & Richard Harrow. And stock car racing. And some music and stuff.
Y’know how some things just bug the crap outta you? This pic has always made me go “WTF, Buster???” We’ve all had fun coming up with captions, but I finally stumbled across the ORIGINAL caption to the pic, taken March 24, 1933, which explains quite a bit!
Buster Keaton Sunbathing with Shotgun
“Buster Keaton, who read in the newspapers of the sky-peeping aviator of Beverly Hills who sky-peep at the film stars while they are taking sun baths on their rooftops, prepares to give an aviator a hot reception if they come sky-peeping over his home.”
Now…..wouldn’t it be nice to find the original article! I wonder who else got “sky peeped?”
