The Laws Of Hospitality

Yeah-- if the post title confused you, you're not alone. That is the literal translation of the poster title below which is in French.

Considering the film's plot, that actually is a pretty good title, don't you think? And just in case you don't know, the English title is Our Hospitality.

Back Stage Lobby Card

Dig this lobby card for Back Stage. Roscoe is holding Buster or should we say "Busterina??"

Der Cowboy Poster

A German poster for Go West in the style of yesterday's poster. The statement at the bottom left translates to "They tearfully laugh at the saddest cowboy in the world." If you think of "saddest" as in "not too adept" then yeah, they are right, but I have a feeling they mean "sad" literally due to the Great Stone Face mystique.

Seven Chances Lobby Card

Today we have a lobby card for Buster's 1925 film Seven Chances. I think there was a little artistic license used as the women pictured don't really look like the actresses in the film.

The Playhouse Lobby Card

If you've seen The Playhouse, you will understand this image. If not, you are probably thinking, "What the heck?!" And if not-- go watch it!

The Cook Poster

So here we are in August. I thought this month I would share some interesting and maybe "new to you" posters and lobby cards for Buster movies that I've come across on the internet. Some of them are pretty darn cool. Case in point:

A Swedish poster for The Cook.

ICAD #57

Here is the last Buster card for the 2020 ICAD season. It is a black and white print that I colorized with colored pencil.

ICAD #47

Something different for number 47. I actually did a "painting," such as it is. Quick, sketchy, but I like it.

ICAD #35

ICAD #35 has a little story to tell. I tore off a piece from an old magazine article to use as part of the background. When I turned it over to glue it down, I noticed "Oh! Doctor" which you Keaton fans will recognize as one of the Comique short film titles. The puncutation is off a little, but still the same title. Quite serendipitous, I'd say.
