Tracy; I'm film obsessed, a historian, a painter, a costumer; I love the blues, Led Zeppelin, comedy, and spend most of my time doing research.

The Three Ages, 1923, Buster is finally making feature films! He starts with a spoof on the Griffith epic Intolerance, which was itself a response to Birth of a Nation.  Buster had the film broke into three parts so he could sell them as three two-reelers if it failed as a six-reeler.  This is a fun film, with a lot of great gags, and it signals Buster’s triumphs to come.  The leading lady was a shop girl from England who won a contest to be in a Talmadge picture.  She couldn’t act so Schenck stuck her with Buster, who was patient and kind.
