Happy Birthday, Buster! <3
Buster Keaton’s Recipe For His Famous Pork Pie Hats (in his own words):
1 Stetson Hat
3 Heaping Teaspoons of granulated sugar
1 Teacup Warm Water
Mix water and sugar. Wet the top and bottom of the brim. Smooth it out on a clean, hard surface. Allow to dry until stiff.
I did the early ones myself myself, always - and then I trained my wife.
(The first one was created in 1917 for “The Butcher’s Boy”)

Happy Birthday Adam West
(September 19, 1928)
"Actors want to be loved."Batman" has done that for me. I have an audience out there which is always waiting to see whatever I do. And new generations are constantly discovering me in reruns. So, as long as I stay sharp, good things can still happen for me. Meanwhile, I keep hoping that a wonderful opportunity will come along. Believe me, my life ain’t so bad, after all."
Douglas Fairbanks Jr. 1934

Happy Birthday John Gilbert!!
(July 10th, 1897 - January 9th, 1936)
"I don’t know how I should have managed if I had not been cast opposite John Gilbert…Through him I seemed to establish my first real contact with the strange American world. If he had not come into my life at this time, I should probably have come home to Sweden at once, my American career over."
Fred Astaire, with his wife Phyllis Potter.
