Seeing Stars was an interesting short because of the historical first-time look of Chaplin and Keaton in the same frame
Just watched a four-minute extract of this originally eight minute short on the "Industrial Strength Keaton" DVD collection. It marked the first time Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin were on screen together 30 years before Limelight. Nothing special concerning laughs, just a real-life gathering at the Ambassador Hotel in Hollywood for the forming of the Screen Artists Guild with Buster waiting on Charlie, Chaplin's child co-star of The Kid Jackie Coogan, director Marshall Neilan who just did Penrod, and producer Thomas Ince. The inter-titles make a peppy commentary on the proceedings which resembles the kind of narration you'd hear on many '30s newsreels. Worth a look for historical purposes. P.S. If you're not familiar with Chaplin off-screen without his Tramp costume or mustache, he's on the left of the screen with Coogan.
