Welcome back, everyone, to the Buster Keaton Blogathon–fourth edition!
UPDATE 2/13/18 Day two of the blogathon has begun–looking forward to what the day has in store!
Once again we’re paying tribute to one of the most unique and beloved comedians of all time. An excellent variety of topics is being covered, and more are on the way!
Bloggers: Please send me the link to your post whenever it’s ready today or tomorrow. I’ll be updating periodically throughout the blogathon. Don’t forget that I’ll be holding a drawing for all participants, the winner receiving a Blu-ray/DVD of The Saphead! The drawing will be held on February 14 (Valentine’s Day).
Readers: Drop by often to see the latest posts–and don’t forget that we bloggers adore comments. (We adore them almost as much as Buster adored pratfalls.)
And once again, here are the links to the First, Second and Third Annual Buster Blogathons.
