  1. The 2011 Best Picture The Artist has many amazing connections to silent film history, including Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford, Buster Keaton, and Harold Lloyd. You can read about these connections at my latest post. https://silentlocations.wordpress.com/2015/03/03/the-artist-and-its-amazing-ties-to-chaplin-pickford-keaton-and-lloyd/

    Film about locations around California

    I have written three books about the silent film movie locations used by Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and Harold Lloyd, and have posted over 100 blog posts about other silent film locations. You can learn more here http://silentlocations.wordpress.com/
  4. Here is a link to seven posts about the various New York and Brooklyn filming locations appearing in Speedy, including the cameo of Lou Gehrig during Babe Ruth's cameo http://silentlocations.wordpress.com/category/speedy/
  5. Susan Buhrman has found newspaper accounts that show Buster Keaton first finished filming The Blacksmith in August/Septemeber 1921, which received a bad review in the January 1922 issue of Photoplay Magazine. The movie was pulled from the release schedule, and not formally released in the US until July 21, 1922. This suggests that the new version of the film found by Fernando Pena was the version completed in 1921, that was quickly shipped overseas, and never returned to the United States. Thereafter, following the early negative response to the film and/or other problems, the movie was pulled from release for several months to be re-worked, and officially released domestically in July 1922. My next post shows more discoveries from the new version of the film, and shows, visually, how Keaton halted production of the film for as long as 8-9 months. http://silentlocations.wordpress.com/2013/07/27/found-a-new-version-of-keatons-the-blacksmith-part-2-more-surprises/ Cheers, John Edited by: SilentEchoes on Jul 28, 2013 12:21 AM

  7. The newly discovered scenes from The Blacksmith, as shown in this post, tell us how Buster Keaton made movies at and adjacent to his small studio in Hollywood, and when he covered over his open air filming stage. http://silentlocations.wordpress.com/2013/07/20/found-a-new-version-of-keatons-the-blacksmith-and-the-tales-it-tells/ John
