  1. This was taken at San Simeon, not the MGM lot. See matching architectural details here:

  2. Barry Rivadue

    This looks more like circa 1926-27; look at Keaton’s hair style a la THE GENERAL.

  3. This is a very important photo. In it are some of the people who are the authors of the greatest changing in mankind made by one single art, the cinema.
