“One Easter Sunday I went to a party at Mary Pickford’s house. Everybody from silent films was there. I tried to have fun, but I discovered we had nothing to talk about. Some of them had never heard a Beatles record. They haven’t kept up with the times.”

This Day In Buster…March 19th 1917…

Today is purported to be the day Buster Keaton meets Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle, and it changes his life. After this chance meeting, he goes to Paramount Arbuckle Film Corporation…just to see if this movie-making game is really all it’s cracked up to be…

They say that history repeats itself & here we are in the 20’s again.  When times are tough it’s natural to look back & see if there are any lessons we can learn from what went before.

In 1918, there was a world-wide pandemic of what was known at the time as ‘Spanish Flu’ which, being as the world was also engaged in war, contributed to the untimely loss of many souls.

One theory is that it originated in Buster’s home state of Kansas, and the majority of soldiers that shipped out of the state for France did not make it.
Buster, shipping out from Camp Mills, missed the flu & apart from a chronic ear infection that left him partially deaf the rest of his life, he made it through the war unscathed.

Following what seemed like disaster, came a boom in industry & in innovation.  Buster Keaton had a seven year run of movie-making that left a legacy of creative genius that has entertained, amused & inspired.  Each & every movie was a place to escape to when times were tough…then & now.

It’s very easy to be caught up in a cycle of fear, but we remind you to be like Buster; stay sharp, stay lucky, be kind.  Know that your Damfamily are here to bring cheer when it feels like there is no cheer to be had.
