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.
“I was quite young, and there before my eyes was Buster Keaton, reporting to rehearsal, carrying a pair of shoes that had these gigantic, heavy suction cups attached to the soles. He didn’t speak to us, but he asked someone on the crew to soap a small area of the stage where he was going to work. And then he asked two of the men, one on each side, to push down on his shoulders until the suction cups were firmly planted on the stage. And then we knew why, and everything made sense: no matter in which direction Buster was pushed, he sprang back with equal force, as if he were one of those kiddie jab-bag toys.”
— Alfred Drake, Broadway musical comedy star
