Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

Since I'm on a roll with yesterday's photos of Carole Lombard, I thought I'd keep it going with more summertime photos of Dorothy Sebastian.

If it gets too hot, stay out of the kitchen!

Library of trivia is more like it... I've got a brain like a filing cabinet (and a body to match).

Man, you are a library of knowledge. Fascinating.

Natalie Talmadge was gorgeous too, but she wasn't a very nice person; in the divorce, she took Buster not only for the kids and their Beverly Hills mansion, but for every penny she could get out of him. Buster and Dorothy worked really well as a screen couple... the "chemistry" was happening both on and off the set, and it shows. But by 1933, they'd both been fired by MGM for excessive drinking, so they only appear together in one feature film and one two-reeler.

Dorothy Sebastian was gorgeous. Any guy would have been lucky to have her as his "main squeeze." :)

Buster's involvement with Dorothy led to a very nasty divorce from his first wife, Natalie Talmadge Keaton, which made headlines and featured a custody battle over their two small sons. Natalie accused Buster of kidnapping the boys and trying to take them to Mexico, to which Buster replied, "How can a man kidnap his own children?" A judge awarded her custody of the boys, which devastated Buster and contributed to his drinking problem, which was getting worse all the time. Not a pretty story, but that's what happened.

Very interesting details Pilsner. I never knew that.

Buster Keaton's "main squeeze" in the late 20's and early 30's, and also his co-star in "Spite Marriage" (1928) and "Allez-Oop" (1934). It must have been the pork pie hat, ill-fitting suits, and the slap shoes that got her interested in him.
