One of my “idols” from when I was young, a long time ago, was Buster Keaton. I realise that this might be an odd post amidst all home furnishing, fashion, food & outdoor posts. Buster was an American comic actor & was best known for his silent movies. He had a deadpan look – no matter in what situation he ended up. I don’t think that Buster Keaton was his real name but that wasn’t important – his performance made an impression on me. I think his era was around 1920 – 1935 maybe, when he was productive & recognised for his talent as actor. One of his movies was The General & around 2000 this film was ranked as the 15th best of all times. He disappeared out of my life, when I got older but I never forgot his expression or his performance. Comic but in a sad way!
I stumbled upon this image recently which reminded me about my upbringing which he was part of, in some way – thanks to my father who was a big admirer.
