The Second Annual Buster Keaton Blogathon -- February 7, 2016

Lea at hosting the Second Annual Buster Keaton Blogathon.  Last year I wrote about Buster Keaton's time in vaudeville: The 3-4-5 Keatons.  This year I decided to write about a question that has bothered me since I first read about Buster's life.  When he left the family act, he signed up to play in a Broadway review, The Passing Show of 1917.  I immediately wondered what was The Passing Show of 1917, but when I was a kid, I couldn't find much about it.  Buster left the show before or during rehearsals and went into the movies.  Good thing. 

Now I know about the show.  Read about Buster Keaton and the Passing Show of 1917 on my other blog.  .

Life, 10-May-1917
