Title

Buster Keaton in Łódź

Description

Ad from the Yiddish newspaper Najer Folksblat publicizing a 1933 screening of a Buster Keaton film at the movie theaters Adria and Metro in Łódź. Buster Keaton's vaudeville-like performances were immensely popular in Łódź during the 1920s and into the '30s. The advertised screening probably refers to his last MGM film, the 1933 What! No Beer?
