Buzz's 1963 Director's Guild dues form showed earnings of $16,000 (Jumbo money and little else). In his late sixties, he was not idle by choice. Although it appeared he would take any project that crossed his desk, he remained optimistic, answering personal and fan letters, devising new musical numbers in his mind, and hopeful that an offer was only a phone call away. He seemed to receive offers of films that never got off the ground. Buzz's world tour of accolades also began. In November, it was announced that UCLA was going to have a Busby Berkeley Film Festival, and soon thereafter, Buzz and Etta left for London. Additional tributes forced the sedentary Buzz to venture out of Palm Desert. In February 1967, the University of Southern California, following UCLA's lead, ran two hours of Berkeley clips, and Buzz and Ruby Keeler were reunited onstage.
