As the years pass, it becomes increasingly clear that Buster Keaton was not merely the most influential comedian of the Golden Age of Slapstick, but was one of the most innovative filmmakers in cinema history. His films ranged from knockabout comedies (showcased in three discks of short films) to historical romantic dramedies (Our Hospitality), sometimes expanding into spetacular epics (The General, Steamboat Bill, Jr.). The key to Keaton's timeless appeal is not just his droll sense of humor or his extraordinary acrobatic abilities, but his thorough understanding of the mechanics of cinema (and the ingenious ways in which he used them to stage one brilliant setpiece after another). This Blu-ray collection includes all the films Keaton made during the prime of his career - authorized by the Keaton Estate, mastered in HD, and supplemented with a trove of bonus features.
