UPDATE: The Sixth Buster Blogathon Is Coming Up Soon!

In just seven days, it’ll be time for…

Busterthon 6 1

Yes, our “yearly Bustering” (as one fellow blogger put it) is nearly upon us! I’m looking forward to reading all your fine entries, and offer a pre-thank you to all the bloggers who are joining in. I know there’s a lot (a lot) of competing blogathons nowadays, so it’s always nice to see you guys set aside a little time to honor our favorite porkpie-hatted comedian!

As many of you already know, I hold a drawing every year for blogathon participants as a little “thank you.” This year our annual Busterthon is graciously being sponsored by the International Buster Keaton Society itself (aka the Damfinos), which is donating a $50 giftcard to their awesome online Buster Stuff store! For many years the Damfinos have worked hard to preserve Buster’s legacy and share his fabulous films with the world, and they also host a lovely convention every October (it could not be more highly recommended). Silent-ology is honored to have their support!

  1. Buster Keaton was asked to plot the stunts for the movie, “In the Good Ol Summertime” and was so obviously wonderful at his job that he was eventually hired as an actor playing the part of Hickey. He was such a sweetheart in this film. I especially love to watch him be a gentleman to the fabulous Judy Garland! He is the cutest little fellow ever!

  2. Hey Lea. I’ve only just seen that your hosting this blogathon again. I know I’m really late in signing up, but I have a half written post on “The General” saved in my blog drafts that I’d like to submit for the blogathon if its okay?

    • Absolutely, happy to have you back, Crystal!! There’s plenty of time to finish up your post (I’m still finishing up mine right now 😀 ).
