One of the greatest film geniuses who ever lived, Buster Keaton, was born this day in Piqua (and that’s pronounced pick-way, and I know because I’ve been there), Kansas, in 1895. I had to work hard to get this screen cap, because everybody is moving so fast, but here it is. Timothy and Buster on screen together in William Asher‘s Beach Blanket Bingo (1965), as a confused Linda Evans looks on.
Tim was a big fan of silent movies. I like to think he got a chance to talk with Buster about Hollywood’s golden days during the making of this film. Happy birthday anniversary to the Great Stone Face.
