Buster catches a ride in “Daydreams.”

Buster Keaton Works Hard for Love in “Daydreams”

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

Buster Keaton asks the father of the woman he loves for her hand in marriage, but the father wants to see Keaton successful first, so Keaton leaves for the big city and tries his hand at a number of different jobs.

Joe Keaton, Buster’s own father, plays the girl's father in this 1922 film, written and directed by Eddie Cline 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.
