Happy Fathers Day Joe and Buster!!
Outtakes from Buster Keaton’s sequence in Hollywood Cavalcade (1939) with Alice Faye. There are no outtakes of the first pie throw because Buster caught Alice by surprise and did it in one take.
Oh, and did I mention the gorgeous, candid Buster smile in the upper right gif? Or the fact that he and Alice start cracking up in the gif below that? This was a beautiful human being.

The picture is Marion Davies (photo by C.S. Bull) in the aforementioned trapeze tights. I’ll leave the rest to your imagination.
Oh, and Buster Keaton was a god. That is all.
Here’s all the BK illustrations from my master’s thesis project together in one giddy post - because I am getting close to graduation and I never thought I’d get here. Thanks to all the Buster fans who supported and advised and added fuel to the fire. : )
These are wonderful!! Great job!!!
