Lea at Silent-ology.is 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. .
