Young Buster Keaton hides from his parents, neighbors and the police while hoping to marry the neighbors’ daughter.

Buster Keaton Marries in “Neighbors”


Can love survive when in-laws hate each other? Buster finds out in 1920’s “Neighbors.”

The short features Buster's father, Joe, in the roll of his father. This film was written and directed by Keaton and Edward F. Cline, who appears as the cop.

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.
