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.
The first try at getting the cannonball to shoot out of the cannon into the cab caused the ball to shoot with too much force. To cause the cannonball to shoot into the cab of the engine correctly, Keaton had to count out the grains of gunpowder with tweezers. [x}
OK, I’m submitting this one to the Mythbusters to see if they can recreate getting a REAL cannonball, shot with real gunpowder, to land in an EXACT spot on a moving train. Something tells me only Buster could pull this off!
