Buster Keaton -- Keaton's Kolossal Komedy -- September 19, 2023

Motion Picture News, 01-September-1923

Buster's first five-reel feature was Three Ages. "How they put it over in Frisco." Ugh.

"Prepare! K. K. K. is Coming!!" This unfortunate and threatening slogan meant "Keaton's Kolossal Komedy." Note the advertisement painted on the guy's coat: "He Hasn't Been to See/Buster Keaton in 'Three Ages' at Loew's Warfield." The Warfield still exists. It is used as a music venue.
