Buster Keaton

Also a silent film comic, Buster Keaton was born into show business through the circus. His family was almost as popular as he was. He never smiles, and wears a flat straw hat.

His popularity declined after the silent era. He continued making movies however until the 1970's. These included "Beach Blanket Musicals" and "Funny thing Happened on the Way to the Forum"

neat fact
Harry Houdini was his godfather and gave him the nick name Buster. that had not been used as a name until after Buster Keaton.


not sure if this is really them or misstagged…
