Buster Keaton Performs Amazing Stunts in “The Goat”

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

Buster is mistaken for Dead Shot Dan in “The Goat” (1921), leading to an extended chase with amazing stunts and surprising escapes.

This two-reel chase is Keaton’s first credited collaboration with director, writer and producer Mal St. Clair. One stunt fall left Keaton injured for three days.


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.
