On your Usenet question: no, there is no specific group I know of
for either Keaton or cliffhanger serials. Best I can suggest is
alt.movies.silent, which includes postings about Keaton. I'd bet there's
probably a website or two devoted to Keaton. There are certainly some
for silent movies, but I haven't heard of one for cliffhangers.
