Buster.

I've had a few requests for this guy, and I'll admit at first it had me scratching my head a bit.



But then I saw pictures like that and started to understand. Huge, almond-shaped eyes, aquiline nose, perfect lips, thick hair.  Ok, I see it.  In fact, here's a bonus:


The puppy in his pocket especially killed me, but what a nice profile he had. So here you go, Buster Keaton: another handsome man who is unfortunately dead. Sigh.

  1. Found this blog today and I LOVE it. I totally feel the same way as you do from your introductory post :). Keep the handsome dead guys coming! I will definitely be tuning in from here on out!

  2. I, too, was puzzled by my fascination with Buster, until I saw the short, "College," where he winds the story up running after his girlfriend at full speed, dressed in boxers and tank tee like (of course) an athlete at this track meet, and he barrels through the obstacles with this gorgeously muscled bod, leaping and running and dodging and diving, until he finally reaches his girl, and BOY IS HE SWEATY WHEN HE DOES. And boy, was I!

  3. Couldn't have said it better myself, Joy! :D Love that scene, as well as any scene where Buster gets physical. He could run like a freakin' GAZELLE.

    And the changing room & swimming pool scene from The Cameraman has me LMFAO every single time!

    Natalie Talmadge didn't know a good thing when she had it. Bitter? Oh, a little. I've been crushing on the guy since 1989. Obsessive? Oh, a little. ;-)

    Thanks for posting lovely Buster, Blog-Mistress-Lady!

  4. Oh YUMMY.

    I'm normally not the jealous type, but a petty little part of me wishes some kind of misery for all his leading ladies. :-D

  5. Buster is funnier, but Harold Lloyd is the real cutie! and I have always wondered about the delight of running my fingers though that delight curly mop of Mr Chaplins hair...yum

  6. Buster is beautiful not only for his looks but for his ability to take a spine-cracking hit and keep on running. He is my A-No. 1 dead actor crush.

  7. Joe "Buster" Keaton did his own stunts. Upon his death, his autopsy revealed that he had broken several vertebrae over the course of his life.

  8. I, too, pine longingly for this beautiful, sexy brilliant dead man. Even as an old man his brilliance, soul and strength were undiminished, still doing his own stunts in "The Railrodder" a year before he died.
