Silent-ology’s grand Buster celebration is a little over a week away, everyone!! Are you as excited as I am?!
Quite a few bloggers have signed up for this event, and since 2017 is a special year I’ve gone all out and decided that Silent-ology will be holding not one, not two, but three drawings for all blogathon participants! (The hundred-year anniversary of Buster entering films ain’t happening again, folks!) Here are the prizes:
Drawing #1: The International Buster Keaton Society (aka the Damfinos) have graciously donated a $25 giftcard to their Buster Stuff store! They carry DVDs, books, t-shirts, mugs, jewelry–anything and everything Buster!
Drawing #2: A copy of Buster Keaton: The Persistence of Comedy by Imogen Sara Smith, my personal favorite Buster book and a beautifully-written study on his unique skills and timeless appeal.
Drawing #3: A DVD of Industrial Strength Keaton, a compilation of Buster rarities including TV appearances, some of his talkies, and newsreel footage.
If you are just learning about this blogathon and would like to join, go right ahead! I will accept any and all latecomers. And keep in mind that since 2017 is a banner year, duplicates are 100% allowed!
