The General

Turns out the one and only Buster Keaton filmed a little movie called "The General" here in Oregon back in 1926.
The town of Cottage Grove was the film location.
The hubby and I took a nice little stroll through the downtown district. There wasn't much left to show of the great events from the past except for this fantastic mural of my Buster. You can see little ol' me near Buster's left hand...
Besides our somewhat fruitless search for Buster artifacts, we each got a fun old hat from the antique store.
We will be returning to Cottage Grove when the rest of the Damfino's from the International Buster Keaton Society show up in a year or two to take a tour of the film locations that are a bit remote.

  1. My goodness, Madame Addams - how I envy you and your gentleman's visit to one of Buster's many film locations - hope someday I may haunt the area for a spell as well.
