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.
Busterphiles are all familiar with Keaton’s adopted hometown of Muskegon, Michigan - but did you know he spent almost as many summers in Perry, Oklahoma during his youth? Buster’s grandparents relocated to Perry not long after The Keatons began their Vaudeville career, and Joe, Myra, Buster & siblings summered in Perry before they discovered beautiful Lake Michigan. In fact, when The Buster Keaton Story was released 1957, it was Perry OK that hosted the premier! The simple house where the Keatons lived still stands.
