In celebration of what would have been Buster Keaton‘s birthday (October 4, 1895) and in keeping with an October-ish theme, here is a presentation of his 1921 film, The Haunted House, which was written and directed by Keaton and Edward F. Cline.
A bit late as Miss Swanson would have celebrated her birthday a couple of days ago, but no less fun and never a waste to remember. Here are a couple of silent comedy shorts starring Gloria Swanson and Bobby Vernon – both directed by Clarence G. Badger and produced by Mack Sennett. And worth a look.
Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle would have celebrated his birthday today (1887-1933). In remembrance here is a 1918 comedy short, Good Night, Nurse, which co-stars Buster Keaton. Not only is this great fun, but it’s historic – Buster Keaton smiles on camera!
