A Little Buster Trivia #1

With the current state of affairs, I thought we could use a little distraction. So I will be posting a simple Buster Keaton trivia question every day (hopefully). The answer will appear the following day. For #1, let's start at the beginning:

What year was Buster born?
a. 1893
b. 1895
c. 1897
d. 1899

Good luck! Maybe some of you will do a little Keaton research or movie viewing for "the duration," and get your minds on something else for awhile. See you tomorrow!

The Bell Boy

The Bell Boy was released on this day in 1918. Gosh, 102 years later we can still watch it. I think Buster and company would be amazed.
P.S. If you haven't seen it, enjoy our video for The Elk's Head Hotel; it acts as a trailer for The Bell Boy.
