Re: BLAZING AWAY (1928) Lloyd Hamilton

Thanks for posting this - yet another football themed comedy that was filmed at the former Bovard Field at USC, along with Lloyd's The Freshman and Keaton's Three Ages and College. The Draw Back (1927) with Johnny Arthur also has many great views of the field. http://youtu.be/O1arjP9xyc4?list=PLZCm3...

How Buster Keaton Filmed The General

This post shows how Keaton filmed The General, in many cases just steps from the hotel where he and his crew stayed when filming in Cottage Grove, Oregon.
