Buster’s Girls: Exclusive Guest Post by Author Steve Massa (Slapstick Divas)

Buster’s Girls The most often seen silent comediennes are probably Sybil Seely and Virginia Fox, the leading ladies of Buster Keaton, as his popular shorts, such as One Week (1920), The Playhouse (1921), and Cops (1922), are still viewed and enjoyed today. Both women had started their careers as Mac......Read more

Film Noir Review : The Hoodlum (1951)
