[some edgewear and surface rubbing/scratching to covers, brief gift inscription on inside front cover] Trade PB (B&W photographs, maps) "A unique visual history of early Hollywood and other vintage locations as depicted in Buster Keaton's classic movies. Combining images from Keaton's films with archival photographs, historic maps, and scores of dramatic 'then' and 'now' photos, [this book] reveals dozens of movie locations that lay undiscovered for nearly 80 years. Part time-machine, part detective story, [the book] presents a fresh glimpse of Hollywood's most romantic era. More than a book for film, comedy, or history buffs, [it] appeals to anyone fascinated with solving puzzles or witnessing the awesome passage of time." Foreword by Kevin Brownlow.
