PRESENTED BY GARY SCOTT BEATTY, PUBLISHER AND EDITOR, MUSKEGONMAGAZINE.COM, AND AUTHOR AND ILLUSTRATOR
Movies like “My Wife’s Relations” (1922) remind us we are a nation of immigrants!
A Polish judge who speaks no English marries Buster to a large Irish woman when she accuses him of breaking a window.
Will Buster fit in with his new wife and her rowdy family?
In the early 1900’s performers began to spend summers in the Bluffton area. Buster’s father, Joe, helped found the Actor’s Colony club there and by 1911, over 200 performers resided in the colony. By the early 1920’s, the California film industry lured many vaudevillian performers to Hollywood, including Buster and his family.
