Title: Buster Keaton Collection
PLEASE NOTE: This is an NTSC (USA/JAPAN format)
As the years pass, it becomes increasingly clear that Buster Keaton was not merely the mostinfluential comedian of the Golden Age of Slapstick, but was one of the most innovative filmmakersin cinema history. His films ranged from knockabout comedies (showcased in three discs of shortfilms) to historical romantic dramas (OUR HOSPITALITY), sometimes expanding into spectacularepics (THE GENERAL, STEAMBOAT BILL, JR.). The key to Keaton’s timeless appeal is not justhis droll sense of humour or his extraordinary acrobatic abilities, but thorough understanding ofthe mechanics of cinema (and the ingenious ways in which he used them to stage one brilliantsetpiece after another).
