Tony Kaye’s studio in Hollywood stores some of his extraordinary work. It emerges that the house was where Holbrook Blinn rehearsed Mary Nash to safely faint for a press scam that would try and make a name at the premier of ‘High Sign’.
The movie was Buster Keaton’s first independent two-reeler. Keaton didn’t consider it funny enough and had it shelved upon its completion in 1920. It was released the following year when his film output was slowed by a broken leg.
