I don't know about your neck of the woods, but it sure is hot here. And, yes, we're still working on the Elk's Head commercial while slowly melting.

So Why Keaton, Part 6: Buster in Bloom

Here it is: the obvious, the shallow, the cosmetic reason for Keatonholism: his looks! I could write about soulful eyes, a perfectly imperfect nose, complementing mouth, chiseled bones, but in this case, pictures speak louder than words.

I rest my case.

On a not so shallow note, BK's features seemed specifically designed for performing. Large eyes, classic profile... The next time you watch an early Keaton film pay extra attention to his visage (there's a tough assignment). It stands out from everyone else on the screen.

This post concludes my little essay on why I continue to promote Buster Keaton. I could offer more, but for now, I'm sure you get the point. Thanks for reading.

Random Keaton Note #8

In BK's autobiography, Buster stated there is a snake around his neck in this photo. Really? I always thought it was just the bandana. What do you think??
