The Three Ages (1923), from http://www.busterkeaton.com
The 13th Annual Damfino Convention takes place in Muskegon, Michigan, 5-6 October. This the annual convention of the International Buster Keaton Society. Promised attractions include a baseball game on the field where Buster played as a child, a ‘Know Your Keaton’ trivia quiz, a Keaton memorabilia auction, scholarly presentations, and a costume party. Among the screenings is a rare showing of The Three Ages (1922), Keaton’s first feature film, which co-starred Margaret Leahy, winner of a British ‘find-a-film-star’ competition, whose poignant story I tell in an essay available on the Damfinos website (you’ll find it in the Articles section).
