Buster Keaton was not the only comedian to film on the west end of Hollywood Boulevard. These frames to the left and below come from Harold Lloyd’s Girl Shy (1924), Why Worry? (1923), and I Do (1921). The H.P. Rehbein Richfield gas station on the corner of Sycamore was later replaced by the multi-story Rehbein office building in 1925. Buster ran west past the Rehbein office building, while wearing a red devil suit, during the cattle stampede in his later comedy Go West (1925).

The same H. P. Rehbein Richfield gas station billboard appears in Girl Shy (left) and in Why Worry ? (right).
