Trouble Again: Buster Keaton is Convict 13

PRESENTED BY GARY SCOTT BEATTY, PUBLISHER AND EDITOR, MUSKEGONMAGAZINE.COM, AND AUTHOR AND ILLUSTRATOR

In Buster’s film Convict 13 (1920) presented below, Buster once again is dangerously misunderstood by the police, changing places with an escaped prisoner and scheduled to hang!

Convict 13 was written and directed by Edward F. Cline (who portrays the hangman here) and Muskegon’s own Buster Keaton.


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.
